- On Monday morning, odd tweets began appearing from @BurgerKing's Twitter account, which had assumed a familiar avatar.
- News of the hacked account spread rapidly on Twitter.
- And many mocked it.

- When Anonymous shows pity for the hacked, that seems significant.
- An hour or so after it began, the account was suspended.
- It's a tough way to gain new followers, but @BurgerKing did - increasing its following by almost a third.

- @BurgerKing's previous tweets were much tamer by comparison.
