Fox news and the death of Barak Obama

Fox News had its @foxnewspolitics hacked over the weekend resulting in false tweets that President Obama had been assassinated. These have since been removed but you can see a screen capture here (click on image for larger version):

Fox have now issued a statement and

will be requesting a detailed investigation from Twitter about how this occurred, and measures to prevent future unauthorized access into accounts

I would suggest that using a secure password and restricting access to it might be the simplest solution....
