Lady Gaga’s Twitter Hacked, 17M Followers Promised Free iPad 2s

We’re still working to confirm this, but it looks like someone has finagled their way into Lady Gaga’s insanely popular Twitter account. That, or the pop icon really did just offer free iPad 2s to all 17 million people that follower her (through the shadiest looking website in the world, no less.)

There’s been at least two tweets so far. The first went up just under an hour ago, promising Macbooks for all of her followers “in the spirit of the holidays”. All they needed to do to grab theirs? Just visit some shady link, fill out a few details… and then sign up for a bunch of offers and tell your friends to do the same. That one got pulled almost instantly.

Update: Gaga confirms the hack, and assures her followers that it’s now over.
