There's a lot of celebrities on Twitter. There's also a lot of people pretending to be celebrities on Twitter. For this reason, Twitter has a 'verified account' feature that sets apart the poseurs from the genuine celebs. Yesterday fans following the real Britney Spears got a little bit of a shock.
According to The Superficial, Britney's Twitter account was hacked and before long the person behind the attack was Tweeting satanic messages of love to her nearly 4 million followers.
"i hope that the new world order will arrive as soon as possible! –Britney," the hacker tweeted.
"I give myself to Lucifer every day for it to arrive as quickly as possible. Glory to satan!" said a second message.
Britney's user picture and profile were also altered as part of the attack. Her Twitter account has since returned to normal with a message from "her people" reading, "Britney's twitter account was just hacked. The situation has been resolved and we apologize for any offense the hacker's messages caused."
