Good news, Jeep: If yesterday's Burger King hack taught us anything, it means you can probably expect to get tens of thousands of more Twitter followers as a result.

Based on @Jeep's most recent tweets (along with a background image that has since disappeared, and a handful of hashtags) it appears fairly clear that the group behind this particular hack is the same one that executed yesterday's BK stunt.

Update 3:10 p.m.: Looks like Jeep has retaken the controls. Meanwhile, Gizmodo thinks it knows who was behind both hacks.
