It’s a pain in the balls but using one of those password generators can be a corporate lifesaver. You’ll never be able to memorize it in a jillion years but it could prevent what happened to the Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant chain last night. Their Twitter account was hacked, and some pinhead tweeted a bunch of racist, obscene garbage. And they also offered a physical description of someone named “Glove” and “Glove” should probably sue because it made him sound sort of unattractive.
Buffalo Wild Wings’ tweets were ghost-written by evil for about 20 minutes before one of the Wild Wingers got a clue and started deleting messages.
Fortune speculates that the chain might not have employed two-factor authentication for their Twitter account which is supposed to prevent incidents like this. Here’s some of the now-deleted tweets:
Ugh, douches sharing private jokes publicly is douchey.
And you probably didn’t need to know what Buffalo Wild Wings’ secret ingredient might be, but this aspiring Twitter whistleblower has a theory. Special thanks to Tommy? *sad-face*
Our secret recipe is Tommy’s cum. That’s what makes our wings so good! 😉
The company (which is owned by the former Arby’s, now Inspire corporation which also owns its former namesake and R Taco) tweeted an apology.
Well, we were hacked. And it wasn’t funny. We apologize for the awful posts, which obviously did not come from us.

Shouldn’t they offer everyone some free wings to make up for our eyes being scorched by offensive tomfoolery? And some beers? Howzabout an offer to cater everyone’s next five office luncheons for free? Panera gets boring after awhile.
