Woz's Twitter account hacked?

It appears that the Apple co-founder's Twitter account may have been hacked by someone who earned $781 today working from home.

Being hacked is rapidly becoming a badge of honor.

So some will wish to rise to respect Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak's Twitter feed being apparently tampered with.

In a post that has subsequently been removed, some perhaps unknowingly humorful soul offered: "I made $781 today working a few hour from home check this out!"

No, please don't click in the link. Few who manage to earn $781 in one day post their secrets on Twitter for all to see.

Naturally, one has reached out to Twitter to confirm, among other things, that Wozniak must surely have made more than $781 today. News of how much he has made will surely be impossible to secure.

Woz himself appears to be entirely unperturbed by this unwelcome intrusion. He seems to be on vacation and therefore not immediately available for comment.

He has, however, merrily continued tweeting. Indeed, 56 minutes ago, he appears to have had a light lunch at the Old Faithful Dining Room in Yellowstone Park.

I cannot confirm at this time that it cost $781.

Update: Wozniak, on being alerted by CNET to his Twitter problem, said: "I really don't use my Twitter account. I should. It's a good thing. But it's down on my priority list and I'm too short of time."

He added: "I use many passwords, as most of us do, for various reasons. Because I never took Twitter as super important, it has a weaker password than more important accounts. If it's been hacked, I'll just change the password."
