@djjd62,
Who would have thought TeaBaggers were so technically savvy to even know what Twitter is, let alone hack an account.

@djjd62,

is it hacked, or is it just an account someone set up made to look like it belongs to msnbc?

@Region Philbis,
Excellent point RP.

It does seem to have a very small amount of followers for such a large branded commercial news media. Could be a zombie/clone account rather then the actual account held by the MSNBC media corporation.

@tsarstepan,
apparently it wasn't an MSNBC site, but somebody who tweeted MSMBC headlines, it was hacked by somebody, the site was "unavailable due to suspicious activity" shortly after it was discovered

still funny in my opinion

@djjd62,
It's a definite hoot. Especially since some of it's followers must think its an authentic Twitter feed when they signed up.
