Lady Gaga’s Hacked Twitter Account Promises Her Followers An iPad 2

Posted Dec 20, 2011

Lady Gaga’s Twitter account was hacked temporarily and she promised her 17 million Twitter followers with an iPad 2. “Monsters, I’m giving away FREE iPad2’s to each one of you in the spirit of the holidays 🙂 Go to [bitly link] to receive one!” said the person that hacked her Twitter account. The bit.ly link was connected to a referral ID linked to WebGiftRewardsToday.com. Close to about 7,000 people clicked on that link. Twitter deleted the hacked links and Lady Gaga was able to get control of her Twitter account again. [TechCrunch]
