Hacker Group Takes Over Netflix Twitter Account

Does anyone understand the appeal of taking over a Twitter account? The only thing it proves is that you can get into a Twitter account and, even if you leave a clever tweet or two, they always get erased anyway. Maybe the 15 minutes of fame thing? I seriously don't know.

One of Netflix Inc's Twitter accounts was hacked on Wednesday by an entity calling itself "OurMine". Several mocking tweets were sent from the Netflix US Twitter account. "World security is shit. We are here to prove this smile ," said one tweet. Some of the tweets were deleted in less than 10 minutes.
