@foxnewspolitics was hacked on July 4, 2011, with hackers writing a series of tweets about President Obama being killed. One of the tweets said: "@BarackObama has just passed. The President is dead. A sad 4th of July, indeed. President Barack Obama is dead." Another tweet said: "We wish @joebiden the best of luck as our new President of the United States. In such a time of madness, there's light at the end of the tunnel." Hacking group Scriptkiddies claimed credit for the hack, according to Media Bistro.
