One of the great things about being British is that I have almost no idea who Kim Kardashian might be. It turns out that many Americans aren’t quite sure why she’s famous either.
In fact, I always thought the Kardashians were an alien race in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
However, according to the wonder of Wikipedia, I now know that Kim Kardashian is a model and reality TV star who rose to notoriety after she appeared in a sex tape. In fact, she’s so famous that she has over six million followers on Twitter.
Yesterday, Kim Kardashian posted a message on Twitter claiming that she had been hacked. Here’s what she tweeted to her many millions of followers:
Twitter please help me get my password back! How is it that I can tweet from my cell but my home computer says wrong password! #HACKED
Kim’s equally media-friendly sister Kourtney Kardashian also posted about the incident:
Some stalker freak loser hacked @KimKardashian twitter and email. Its called 911 and its called get a life. So just beware of her tweets.
