Surprisingly, upon hacking into BBC Weather's Twitter account, Syria's pro-Assad Electronic Army did not limit their tweets to the weather changes in, say, Damascus.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's Electronic Army (SEA) reportedly took over BBC Weather's Twitter handle on Thursday, resulting in a series of bizarre tweets.
Forget British weather; for several hours @BBCWeather focused on fake earthquakes in Qatar, camels barreling through Saudi Arabia and, of course, how great Assad is.
For example, "Long Live #Syria Al-Assad #SEA" appeared on the prestigious media organization's Twitter feed, according to Business Insider.
Here's one of the latest "weather" updates:
