(Newser) – Ashton Kutcher went to TED yesterday, and lost something intrinsic to being Ashton Kutcher: His Twitter account. The ever-tweeting actor's account appears to have been hacked, and likely by someone all but looking over his shoulder at the conference, reports ReadWriteWeb, which notes that celebs aren't likely to be impressed by the ease with which their accounts can be accessed. A pair of tweets to his @aplusk account read: "Ashton, you've been Punk'd. This account is not secure. Dude, where's my SSL?" and "P.S. This is for those young protesters around the world who deserve not to have their Facebook & Twitter accounts hacked like this. #SSL," reports the Huffington Post. The tweets were still live on his account as of this posting.
