Donald Trump can now count himself among an exclusive group of high-profile users who had their Twitter accounts hacked during the past week. We started out this week with Burger King's Twitter being hijacked and tweeting that they had been bought by McDonalds.

Jeep joined the party a bit later in the week and Donald Trump has joined the ranks today, though he regained his account much quicker than the others. Just before 12p.m. EST, Trump's account tweeted lyrics from Will.I.Am's "Scream & Shout (Remix)" song, as seen in the picture above.

Within 15 minutes, the tweet was deleted, but not before being retweeted by over 1,000 people. Trump has probably said "You're Fired!" to the people in charge of keeping his Twitter account safe and has tweeted that he is looking for the perpetrators.

MTV and BET attempted to jump on the Twitter hacking bandwagon by pretending to hack each other. The stunt failed to pay off and the two companies have received negative feedback over it.
