Barack Obama's tweets hacked

(CNNMoney) - A pair of tweets sent by President Barack Obama's Twitter account re-directed users to to pro-Bashar al-Assad YouTube videos Monday afternoon.

One tweet about immigration reform was supposed to send followers to an article from The Washington Post. Instead, it linked to a video montage of terror attacks, starting with the attacks on 9/11.

    Data and Rudy,
    Is this supposed to concern me? If they can hack into the Prez's account, should I now be worried or am I conflating the two? I really think you guys have way too much faith in the govt...

    It is not uncommon on computers nowadays. Virus, hacking is so common. But we need to stay away from important stuff.

    Maybe someone wanted to remind us why the NSA was given so much power. Twelve years has past since 9/11. The horror of that day has faded for many.

    Only two were hacked? That's where the credibility goes away. Looks like a tweet freudian slip. Must be the same hacker that tweeted for anthony weiner.
