No, the home of the Whopper has not become the home of the Big Mac.
Hackers apparently took over Burger King's Twitter account Monday and began sending out anti-BK tweets -- and even changed the logo and name on the account to those of fast food rival McDonald's.
It appears the @BurgerKing account was hacked just before noon ET on Monday, but the ruse didn't last long. A message on the Twitter page appeared at 1:30 p.m. saying "Sorry, that user is suspended."

The account included offensive language, so view it at your own risk.
There was no immediate word on whether the FBI had put a trace on the Hamburglar's IP address, but at least one journalist drew a link between Monday's hack and a group that infiltrated Paris Hilton's cell phone back in 2004.
The first bizarre tweet from the @BurgerKing account on Monday mentioned "DFNCTSC," which Caitlin Kelly of The New Yorker linked to the Hilton cell phone hacking.
That hack by an alleged member of the self-proclaimed "Defonic Team Screen Name Club" led to the contents of her address book being posted online, including the private phone numbers of many celebs.
A Burger King spokesman told The Associated Press that the company asked Twitter administrators to suspend the account. According to the AP, Burger King planned to post a statement on Facebook later Monday to apologize, especially for the offensive posts, and hoped to have the Twitter account back up soon.
For their part, McDonald's was a good sport about the ordeal, tweeting out the following message Monday afternoon: "We empathize with our @BurgerKing counterparts. Rest assured, we had nothing to do with the hacking."
