One of two things is going on right now with the official Chipotle Twitter account. It’s either being used by someone at Chipotle who doesn’t understand how Twitter works, or it’s been hacked by someone who doesn’t understand how hacking Twitter works. Either way, it’s bound to right itself eventually, so take a look while you can, and don’t worry — we have screen shots!
Mediaite’s Evan McMurry pointed out the shenanigans through his own Twitter account. We assume this means McMurry digs Mexican food:
.@ChipotleTweets has been hacked, apparently by a stoner who really wants an avocado.

Here’s the situation as it stands:
So there you go. We only know two things for sure: @ChipotleTweets is currently sending out a bunch of nonsense and now I really want a burrito.
Glad you found that avocado store.
Update: Looks like a new Tweet just went up. Looking more like a hack now — A weird hack, sure, but still a hack.
Update #2: Here are a few more:
Update #3: Aww. :-(
- This is a lot less serious than when the AP’s Twitter account was hacked
- Also less serious than when Anonymous hacked North Korea’s social media accounts
- But it’s pretty on par with the time Burger King’s Twitter got hacked
