NBC News was the victim of a hacked Twitter account Friday evening. Whoever was responsible used the account to send out a chilling, but fictitious, tweet.

The network issued the following statement shortly after the tweet went out: "The NBC News twitter account was hacked late this afternoon and as a result, false reports of a plane attack on ground zero were sent to @NBCNews followers. We are working with Twitter to correct the situation and sincerely apologize for the scare that could have been caused by such a reckless and irresponsible act."
