(Radio.com) Three high-profile musicians and rock bands were targeted by Twitter hackers over the weekend. The handles for Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, Tame Impala, and Bon Iver were hijacked to display false, disturbing and obscene messages, which have since been deleted.

The Tame Impala account sent out a bomb threat to JetBlue, while the Bon Iver handle was changed to @ihavelegcancer and publicly disparaged the late Muhammad Ali reported NME.
