At around 10 pm on Thursday, Twitter’s website was down, and the home page replaced with a page saying that it was hacked by the “Iranian Cyber Army”. They also left a message saying:
Iranian Cyber Army

U.S.A. Think They Controlling And Managing Internet By Their Access, But They Don’t, We Control And Manage Internet By Our Power, So Do Not Try To Stimulation Iranian Peoples To….

The search result from Google were also changed for Twitter by the hackers, and read:

Twitter is now back to normal, but what was done is not exactly sure. It is now under investigation to find out who is responsible for this hack, and is suggested that if you use the same password on Twitter as you do with other accounts it would be a good idea to change those passwords.
