NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The Syrian Electronic Army claims it has taken over Twitter's web site domain.
The group sent out the message ironically on Twitter, letting the micro-blogging social network know of the alleged attack in a tweet.
The Syrian Electronic Army may also be responsible for hacking into the Web site of The New York Times, owned by The New York Times Co. (NYT). Twitter spokeswoman Christina Thiry said the company was "looking into this," regarding the claim. -- Written by Chris Ciaccia in New York >Contact by Email. Follow @Chris_Ciaccia
