I mean, hey. They gave Obama one for less.

Would have been better with a less obvious tweet.

Marriage is a sacred institution between a man, some lotion, and a tube site.

I will pray for these hackers.

Did they take it over, or just make a new one masquerading as NOM's twitter feed?

It only has 12 tweets (all done today) and many of the followers appear to be people who support the new direction.

Fabulous.

Well done people. We have to berate and mock these people for their intolerance and idiocy.

They took it over. If you go to http://www.nationformarriage.org Link (new window) , the twitter button on the bottom links directly to the hacked page. =)

Best be careful. Your typical funndie has been raised not to ask questions of there leaders.

Full LGBT equality is kind of obvious for a marriage organization to work towards. The Klan, not so much, but a marriage organization has no business with bigotry.

so was the page hacked or the feed? I'm guessing it was the page.

I'm founding the National Organization for Healthy Americans. Our goal is to limit the number of Americans who are healthy by refusing to allow anyone over 5' 6" tall from being healthy. Sorry tall people, this isn't for you.

Am I doing it right?

I would've thought the latter, but no, it's the former. The Twitter link on the bottom of NOM's website is to the hacked NOMTweets account.
They must have deleted all earlier tweets?
 
2012-04-11 12:36:03 PM  
I can't get the twitter feed to load, but from the screenshot FTA, it doesn't appear as if any of NOM's followers were dening that they were a bunch of bigots/racists/assholes.

I have a feeling that your spawn will do fine in the hate department without any outside help.

See? You just can't find that sort of tidiness in hackers these days.

A recent memo that was leaked shows that NOM was trying to drive a wedge between blacks and gays in order to oppress gay folks easier.
 
2012-04-11 12:39:34 PM  
It's pretty lame, since it quite obviously didn't work. Seems the NOM members figured out it was a hack in short order. Nice gesture, though.

I'm wondering if it happened the other way around - they created a dummy Twitter account and then hacked the main page to link to it.

But either way, good for them! It couldn't have happened to a nicer organization than NOM.

i wish they didn't have such a cool moniker.

If all dedicated members of Focus on Family and National Organization for Marriage were laid end-to-end ....

.... and then run over with a Mack truck, the world would be a happier, saner place.

/yeah, I know, "... liberal hate"
//but THEY started it.

So would you guys be cool if hackers took over GLAAD's twitter page and posted anti-homosexual propaganda?

To be fair, NOM's twitter password was just NeedSecretDick

Not butthurt at all.

I think it is rather funny.

I am just throwing a monkey wrench and asking "what if". You would all be calling for their arrests and being put in jail for years.

The support is for the anti-hate not the hacking but you would not understand that...

No worries, they'll be back to actively working to create laws and regulations that make any lifestyle other than their own god-fearing, misogynistic hate-fuel worthy of fines and jail time soon enough. I'm sure they'll survive some snark and well-deserved Internet hijack-satire.

Or they created a new account, took over the old NOM account, and then gave the official account's name to the new account they created. That would explain the low follower account.

No, I wouldn't, and I'd prefer if you left me out of your fantasies.
