Barack Obama Twitter account hacked

USA president elect Barack Obama’s Twitter account has been hacked and used in a scam. The hacked account was used to send a message (or ‘tweet’) reading, “What is your opinion on Barack Obama? Take the survey and possibly win $500 in free gas. http://tinyurl.com/9evlne”

The link in the message redirects to a Free Lotto scam site.
