Twitter Hacked By Iranian Government Supporters

Did you have trouble accessing Twitter last night?

If so it was because the micro-blogging site was hacked by supporters of the Iranian regime.

Dissidents in Iran use social media sites like Twitter extensively to get their message about human rights violations out to the rest of the world. Some people who tried to log onto Twitter for several hours were greeted instead with an anti-American message.
