Spammers staged a sit-in on Occupy Wall Street’s Twitter account Thursday morning, yelling at passers-by to check their credit scores.
The official Twitter account of the OWS movement was infiltrated by a spammer urging early-bird followers to check their credit. Though the tweets have since been deleted from the account, BetaBeat noted that they were posted within a short period of time early Thursday.
“Millions shocked at how bad their credit scores are. See it Instantly @profinity” and “A Good Credit Score is 693 & Above See Your Credit Instantly Now !!Check at http://bit.ly/K3uzg8” were among the few spam tweets.
At 4:06 am Eastern Time, OWS tweeted that it was working on shutting the hackers down.
