Twitter: Hackers hijack Chavez critics’ accounts – The Times of India

CARACAS: Over months, Venezuelan TV soap opera writer Leonardo Padron built a Twitter following of about 250,000 people by posting more than a dozen messages a day, many of them skewering President Hugo Chavez.

On Aug. 29, Padron issued a typical shot: “Chavez knows of the immense death toll that there is in this country, so why such indifference to the subject of insecurity?”

Three days later, however, the tweets picked a new target: Padron himself. “In no way have I contributed to combat racism, discrimination, cultural alienation,” one note read. “My soap operas feed these evils in our society.”
