Nelly Furtado’s Twitter Account Also Hacked

Hot on the heels of Lady Gaga‘s Twitter account being hacked, singer Nelly Furtado has also fallen victim to hacking. Where as Gaga was “offering” an iPad2 to all of her followers in the spirit of the season, Furtado’s fake tweet, which has since been removed from her feed, offered Mac Book laptops. You know what they say: If it’s too good to be true, it probably is.

The tweet read: “Dearies, I’m giving away free Macbooks to each one of you in the spirit of the holidays.” A fake and potentially dangerous link was also included in the tweet. You can view the tweet on Tech Crunch.

Pop stars should be concerned as there seems to be some sort of coordinated effort to take over their social media networks.

A word of warning to those who follow pop stars on Twitter: Do not click on these links offering up free tech gadgets. They could cause harm to your computer.
