Hackers Take Over BP Twitter Account, Put ‘Terry’ In Charge

According to Fox News, hackers took over BP’s official Twitter account with hilarious results.

“Terry is now in charge of operation Top Kill, work will recommence after we find a XXL wetsuit. #bpcares #oilspill.”

Terry, of course, is the fictional BP PR flack who’s been absolutely annihilating the company on his fake “BP” Twitter account @BPGlobalPR.


The hacked post has since been removed.
