Hacking Rhetoric

Hayley Gruwer- Artist’s Statement

1 Comment

The link to the article that I originally summarized is: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/technology/2013/02/burger-king-twitter-account-hacked-to-look-like-mcdonalds/

This article described how Burger King’s Twitter account was hacked to look like McDonald’s account.  In order to hack my summary, I decided to hack the McDonalds and Burger King slogans and logos myself.  I chose to do this because rather than describe a hack that took place, I wanted to create my own hack.  Burger King and McDonald’s are both very large corporations.  They get a lot of attention all the way from their social media to their commercials.  When a large corporation is hacked in a certain way, it gets more attention then when ordinary people, like myself, get hacked.  I found the article above very interesting, so instead of hacking my summary into something I disagreed with, I decided to convey the above article in a different way.  I wanted to show another way that McDonalds and Burger King could be hacked to look like each other.  I used Popcorn Maker to switch the logos and slogans of both McDonald’s and Burger King.
