You can never keep a good hacker down, and while the general public looks down on the vigilantes (sometimes for good reason), cases like this this, must be applauded. An anonymous online pirate has broken through the Burger King account in America and converted it into an all-purpose McDonalds advertisement.

Despite it being a PR nightmare for Burger King, 20,000-plus new people started following the account, most likely to watch the whole thing play out, for which it has since been suspended. Whether this is someone sticking up for their favourite fast food chain or someone trying to aggravate both, they certainly deserve a props for their efforts. Condolences to Burger King’s social media manager.
