Fox Twitter Account Hacked, Claims President Killed in Iowa

Hack Hoax: Fox said somebody hacked into its Twitter account and posted that someone had assassinated President Barack Obama at a restaurant in Iowa. Fox has taken down the malicious tweets. But, according to Mediabistro, one said:

@BarackObama shot twice at a Ross' restaurant in Iowa while campaigning. RIP Obama, best regards to the Obama family.
The Ross' restaurant comment wasn't completely random. There is a restaurant by that name in the Quad Cities' area and, according to WQAD-TV, candidate Obama had promised the restaurant's owner he would return one day to try the signature dish there. The president kept his word and stopped by the restaurant during his visit to the Alcoa plant last week.
