The Twitter account of Yingluck Shinawatra, prime minister of Thailand, was recently hacked.

"The account @PouYingluck was compromised early on Sunday morning and eight false tweets were posted criticising Yingluck's leadership of the country," writes The Inquirer's Dean Wilson. "'How can she protect the country, if she cannot protect her own Twitter account? Think about it,' one of the tweets read, according to French news agency AFP."

"According to Anudith Nakornthap, the Thai minister for information, communication and technology, Yingluck's Twitter account was compromised after the hacker first gained access to her email, changing her Twitter password with the password reset feature," Wilson writes.
