Hackers hijacked pop star Lady Gaga's Twitter account, scamming a number of her fans in the process.

The hacked messages appeared over a short period of time on Monday.

They offered a free computer or iPad to fans who clicked on a link in the post. The link took people to a website that asked for people's personal information.

The messages have been removed, and Lady Gaga tweeted that her Twitter account was back to normal.
