Huffington Post Twitter Feed Got Hacked

The widely followed Twitter account @HuffingtonPost has been posting homophobic and strange messages Sunday afternoon. One tweet attributes the hacking to the "New York Post."

Posted on January 15, 2012, at 2:04 p.m. ET

UPDATE: Tweets were immediately deleted from the feed, and a Huffington Post source confirms the account was hacked.

The "cloverfdch" name the hacker uses was the same handle that showed up on Democratic Alaska Senator Mark Begich's account on New Year's Eve.
