Did anyone see the fake AP tweet about the White House being bombed that caused stocks to plunge temporarily? http://tv.msnbc.com/2013/04/24/dow-jones-drops-but-recovers-after-fake-ap-tweet/ I thought it was so interesting how it caused such a panic in the markets. And then I had to wonder how something like that happens in the first place. I would have thought they had some kind of measures in place to keep hackers from getting in and doing something like that.
