The official twitter account of the CBS show “60 Minutes” was hacked late Saturday night and suspended for the second time in less than 24 hours, this time by someone posting sympathetic Tweets for the Syrian government and opposing the United States’ involvement there.

Earlier Saturday, both the “60 Minutes” and “48 Hours” accounts were hacked. But had been posting later in the day.

Both accounts were still down Sunday. CBS confirmed the earlier attack but not the second one.

The attack occurred while a “48 Hours” special about the Boston Marathon bombings was airing on the same network. That account was also suspended Saturday night.
