Hackers Take Over National Organization For Marriage’s Twitter Account

Hackers on Wednesday morning apparently took over the Twitter account for the anti-gay National Organization For Marriage and turned it into a feed promoting gay rights.

By noon, the stream for @NOMTweets was filled with a dozen messages linking to gay rights organizations and apologizing for the organization’s past.

It wasn’t yet clear who was behind the hack. Here’s a screenshot of one such tweet and the reactions by others on Twitter:
