London, March 27 (IANS) Scottish actor Martin Compston, known for his role in "Sweet Sixteen", fell victim to Internet pranksters when his Twitter account was illegally accessed.
A message promoting weight loss popped up on the 28-year-old's page Monday, reports contactmusic.com.
Visibly upset with the hacking, in a post, he wrote: "As you've probably guessed folks I'm not a diet expert some t**ser hacked the account great to find after finishing work! Apologies."
However, Compston was quick to take action, asking his followers: "How do you change the password on Twitter from your iPhone?"
