Melbourne: Actor Ashton Kutcher’s Twitter account was temporarily hacked on Wednesday.

According to LA Times, the star was attending the TED Conference in Long Beach when someone intruded into his account, reports the Daily Telegraph.

And (rather disappointingly) the intruder wrote just two

"Ashton, you’ve been Punk’d. This account is not secure. Dude, where’s my SSL?" the first message read.

And minutes later: "P.S. This is for those young protesters around the world who deserve not to have their Facebook &
Twitter accounts hacked like this. #SSL"

The hacker’s second tweet references the young, tech-saavy protesters in Arab countries who’ve been recently calling for democratic governments in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Yemen and other countries.

Kutcher created the Punk’d TV show, which ran from 2003 to 2007, and in each episode he’d pull pranks on other celebrities, such as towing their cars, staging fake police standoffs in their homes, or ruining their parties and dinners.
