GMA Website and Twitter ~ Pawned

I was just chatting with my friends in facebook and suddenly a couple of my friends passed me a link of GMA's twitter account which is!/GMANewsOnline and I was surprised that it was filled with Tagalog foul words and that it appears to be hacked because I saw a tweet claiming it was hacked by d4rkb1t.

And so I tried to look in their website and suddenly I was redirected to google. Hmm.. what could have caused this? Then when I tried to visit a certain page in, and again a pop-up message just came out that says hacked by d4rkbit. The same guy who posted nasty stuffs in the twitter.

I wonder what his motives are. Does he want to gain access to its ssh or just for pure fun? Could this cause another competition with its rival TV network? Again I witnessed another defaced site accidentally. My opinion is that maybe the defacer just want to tell the admin of the website that their site is vulnerable.
