The Financial Times website and several of its Twitter accounts were today hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army.

The hack, which took place this afternoon, comes after organisations such as the BBC, CBS, AP and E! Online also had their Twitter accounts hacked by the SEA.

The FT has said it is working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.

Earlier this week, ‘Colin’ began trending after a tweet reading ‘Colin was here’ was sent through the Sky Breaking News Twitter account. Sky later claimed they were hacked.
