Bears’ official Twitter account hacked, announces new ownership


The Bears’ official Twitter account, with 1.8 million followers, was hacked Sunday morning and used to announce a new owner.

The group that broke into the account revealed itself quick as OurMine and tweeted from the Bears’ account that the purpose was to “announce that we are back” and “show people that everything is hackable.” They sent out several additional tweets with their website and contact information.
