The pro-Assad Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) seemingly hacked CNN's official Twitter account on Thursday. The group used the platform to bash President Barack Obama as the "lord of terror" and claim the CIA funds and arms al Qaeda.
Just before 6 p.m. ET, the SEA declared: "Syrian Electronic Army Was Here… Stop lying… All your reports are fake!"
BoingBoing provides screenshots of several of the now-deleted tweets that went out from CNN's account:
