The Twitter account for USA Today was hacked Sept. 25, CNET reported.  The self-described hacking group Script Kiddies took responsibility for the sabotage and asked for suggestions for its next target to hack.

As iMediaEthics has written, Script Kiddies hacked NBC News Twitter account earlier this month and posted fake tweets claiming a Sept. 11 anniversary attack had happened at the site of the World Trade Center. Script Kiddies also hacked FoxNewsPolitics’ Twitter account in July to publish fake news that President Barack Obama had been killed.
