The Associated Press reports its Twitter account was hacked today and that a tweet sent in AP's name about bombs going off at the White House is false.
"The AP twitter account has been hacked, the news
cooperative said moments after the incident. "The tweet about an attack
at the White House is false. We will advise more as soon as possible."
The bogus tweet, sent about 1:08 p.m., read: "Breaking: Two Explosions in the White House and Barack Obama is injured."
