Burger King Twitter account 'HACKED'.

US fast-food company Burger King has said its Twitter account may have been hacked, after its profile picture was changed to a McDonalds logo.

Somebody hacked Burger King's Twitter account on Monday, posting obscene messages and changing its profile picture to a McDonald's logo.

The tweets stopped after a little more than an hour, and Burger King said it had reached out to Twitter to suspend the account. 

The Burger King account was suspended, but a screengrab posted by @AnonymousPress showed the @BurgerKing's Twitter page where it was written: "Burger King USA official Twitter account. Just got sold to McDonalds because the whopper flopped."

The Twitter mishap isn't all bad news for Burger King though — the account added 5,000 new followers in the first 30 minutes since the hackers took over.

A spokesman for Burger King said: "It has come to our attention that the Twitter account of BURGER KING has been hacked.

"We have worked directly with administrators to suspend the account until we are able to re-establish our legitimate site and authentic postings.

"We apologize to our followers who have been receiving erroneous tweets about other members of our industry and additional inappropriate topics."
