Twitter Investigating Syrian Electronic Army Claims of Hacking

Twitter Inc., operator of the microblogging service for posting short status updates, is looking into claims that its Internet domain information has been compromised.

A Twitter account that claimed to be run by the Syrian Electronic Army, which has made claims in the past of hijacking popular accounts on Twitter, sent a message today that said Twitter.com is “owned” by the group, according to a posting today.

The group linked to an Internet-domain service that appeared to show “SEA SEA” as the administrator name for Twitter’s Web address.
