Thai Prime Minister`s Twitter account hacked
Bangkok: The Twitter account of Thailand`s new Prime Minister has been hacked by someone posting criticism of her policies.
Government spokeswoman Thitima Chaisaeng says Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra`s account was hacked into Sunday morning. The Information and Communication Ministry is looking into who was responsible.
At least eight messages were posted accusing Yingluck`s government of incompetence and cronyism.
Yingluck`s Pheu Thai Party won a landslide election victory in July, but critics charge she is just a puppet of her brother, former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.
Thaksin was ousted by a military coup in 2006 after being accused of corruption, setting off bitter and sometimes violent conflicts between his opponents and supporters.
