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:
It does! RT @SarahBrownUK: 58M KIDS AREN'T IN SCHOOL. IF THAT MAKES YOU ANGRY @rainnwilson THEN PLAY #AngryBirdsFriends & SIGN #UpForSchool.
