We saw how easy it is for hackers to get into Twitter accounts, when the Associated Press got its account hacked. A fire department in Oregon can add its name to the list, but it's hacker didn't even know what he was doing.
It started with a questionable tweet sent out Thursday morning on the Forest Grove Fire Department. KGW reports the tweet read: "Do. Or do not. There is no fly. #AngryBirdsStarWars." The next tweet came a few minutes later that read: "I want to learn the ways of the force and become a Jedi like a father. Chirp!"
Turns out, the 5-year-old son of the department's public information officer got a hold of his phone. He told KGW his son was playing a game that was set up to automatically send out Twitter updates.
