Bogus posts went up on the True Grit star’s microblogging page on Monday (13Feb12) redirecting followers to online advertisements for a weight loss aid.
The messages declared, “Want to lose any weight? Go here, best product for losing weight.”
Steinfeld’s fans were quick to spot the phony tweets and they quickly urged the teen star to change her password.
Solange Knowles, child star Willow Smith and actor Kevin Bacon are among the famous faces whose Twitter pages have previously been targeted by hackers.
