Twitter Investigating Hacking Claims

Aug. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Twitter Inc., operator of the microblogging service for posting short status updates, is looking into claims that its Internet domain information has been compromised.

A Twitter account that claimed to be run by the Syrian Electronic Army, which has made claims in the past of hijacking popular accounts on Twitter, sent a message today that said Twitter.com is “owned” by the group, according to a posting today.

The group linked to an Internet-domain service that appeared to show “SEA SEA” as the administrator name for Twitter’s Web address.

Jim Prosser, a spokesman for Twitter, said the company is looking into the claims.
