Chipotle Twitter Hacked, Obscenities Posted

Hackers apparently seized the Twitter account of popular fast-casual chain Chipotle Mexican Grill early Sunday morning, tweeting obscenities and replacing the brand’s main icon with a swastika before the account was recovered, and the offensive tweets deleted, hours later.

The first tweet indicating the account had been hacked was posted at 1:59 a.m. ET on Feb. 8th. Several subsequent tweets were posted, and included racial and homophobic slurs. The tweets targeted President Barack Obama and several government agencies.
