The University of Wisconsin-Madison's Twitter account has been hacked, UW police reported Wednesday morning.

"Admins at @UWMadison are aware that their Twitter account has been compromised. Not to fear -- it will be back to its awesome self soon," UW police tweeted.

Several profanity laced tweets were posted on the UW's feed about 6:30 a.m. The account has about 159,000 followers.
