They were deleted within minutes, but not before a few ABC News affiliate journalists captured the tweets in screen grabs.

One tweet from the hacked ABC News account read, “follow @CNN for real news, our news is wack.”

ABC News public relations’ Twitter account wrote, “.@ABC News, @GMA & @GMAPopNews Twitter accounts were hacked early this morning. We resolved the issue quickly & errant tweets were deleted.”
