Lady Gaga's Twitter account hacked

Lady-Gaga.jpgMother Monster was apparently offering free iPad 2's to her Twitter followers, and not by design. Lady Gaga's Twitter account was hacked. (Many of us have been there.) Warning: Do not click on the link, no matter how generous Gaga may seem to be. That is spam and will make your computer all wonky.

Here's what she said, "Monsters, I'm giving away FREE iPad2′s to each one of you in the spirit of the holidays. :) Go to http://bit.ly/s5MTqM to receive one!" Yeah, Gaga may be rich, but we doubt she's shelling out for an iPad for her over 17 million followers.

She Tweeted about the event later, saying "Phew. The hacking is over! And just in time, I'm on my way to Japan! So excited to spend Xmastime with my TokyoMonsters!" We hope her fans were smart enough not to click!
