Syrian Electronic Army Hacks British TV Station Twitter Feed

ITV Plc (ITV), owner of the U.K.’s biggest commercial TV station, suffered a Twitter account hack today with postings attributed to the “Syrian Electronic Army,” a name also used last week when The Financial Times’s social media accounts were infiltrated with links to war atrocity videos.

The @itvlondon account on Twitter Inc. posted six messages. One said “Francois Hollande to double aid to rebels, including a complementary French flag with every aid package,” with a picture of a white flag against a blue, cloudy sky.
