“Another day, another high-profile Twitter (Twitter reviews) account gets hacked. This time, it’s one of (many) New York Times’ Twitter accounts, The Moment, which brings news from their fashion blog of the same name,” Mashable reports.

Apps: Yes, NYTimes.com is working on apps for Apple’s forthcoming iPhone store.
