Just a few days after the phishing scam fooled thousands of Twitter users, it seems like another security hole has been found by....someone. Twitter reported on its official blog earlier today that around 33 twitter accounts of famous celebrities including US President elect Barack Obama, Britney Spears, Rick Sanchez of CNN have been hacked. This is not related to the phishing scam that happened last weekend.

According to Biz Stone, the founder of Twitter, these accounts were hacked by an individual who hacked into the tools used by Twitter support to edit the email address associated with their twitter account. Twitter presently removed these tools offline,but they might put them back after necessary security measures are taken.
