" Apparently the hacker is Russian, since the messages show good knowledge of Russian politics. "
Moscow, Aug 14 - Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev's Twitter account was hacked Thursday, the government press service said.

The hacker used Medvedev's page to declare the PM's intention to resign and pursue a career as a freelance photographer, RT News reported.

I resign. I am ashamed for the actions of the government. I'm sorry, the first tweet said.

I've been longing to say this. Vova [Putin]! you are wrong! another tweet said.

Apparently the hacker is Russian, since the messages show good knowledge of Russian politics.

For instance, his/her latest tweet addressed to President Vladimir Putin is a reference to the famous words of Mikhail Gorbachev, who said Boris, you are wrong! to Boris Yeltsin in response to his criticism of the Communist Party in 1988.
