Sarah Brown’s twitter hacked

On June 30th, Theirworld founder Sarah Brown’s twitter account was compromised.

It's Red from @AngryBirds. I’ve hacked @SarahBrownUK’s – HAH ! For the first time ever I’m angry enough to TWEET!!!

As it turned out, her account had been hacked by Red from Angry Birds in protest against what he saw as a global injustice: 58 million children are out of school. As surprising as the security lapse was, twitter followers seemed to sympathise a great deal with the intruder:
