For a few minutes this afternoon, the entire nation (or at least anybody following Twitter) took a deep breath …

Why? Because the world’s largest news outlet – the Associated Press – tweeted that two explosions had taken place inside The White House and that U.S. President Barack Obama was injured.

Take a look …

Wow …

Six minutes later, however, the wire service’s corporate account sent out this tweet …

ap update

Hackers from Syria – who recently breached several CBS twitter accounts – are suspected of compromising the AP’s twitter feed and sending out the offending tweet, which caused a brief heart stoppage on the S&P 500.

Take a look …

Wow! Talk about the interconnectivity of media and markets!

Anyway, we noticed a disturbance in the “Twitter-force” earlier today as we attempted to retweet the bare midriffs of attractive coeds to our legions of loyal followers.

No clue whether the AP hack was part of a broader problem with the popular social media platform …

Ain’t nobody going to touch Obama. The people who despise the job he is doing, are the law-abiding, hard-working, responsible and decent. They don’t act like the radicals on the left (See Occupy)….
I know some devout Leftists, who sit around biting their nails, in mock-fear their lord Obama will be harmed. They are the same ones, like FITS, who PRAY each terrorist attack is by a white American…
Fact is: The Delusional Nutjobs in this country are America-Hating Obama Leftists…or they are Muslim Jihadists, who the Liberal-Terians are in bed with…(See FITS/Lisenby)…
Obama’s the safest president we’ve ever had, no matter what delusuions the left lives…

In those six minutes, how many times did Rush and Beck get off?

Viagra takes a while to kick in, so for Rush, probably zero.

What a wasted effort. Why fake tweet an explosion at the White House? Fake tweet Obama having explosive diarrhea in the White House. Then we get to have hilarious follow-up tweets like “the real reason the White House tours were cancelled,” “they just steam-cleaned the carpets in the Oval Office, too,” or “does ObamaCare cover Immodium?”

Maybe Duncan Buell (USC) and his students are hacking again.
