Rupert Murdoch took to Twitter over the weekend to offer his theory on the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight 370.

"World seems transfixed by 777 disappearance," Murdoch tweeted late Friday. "Maybe no crash but stolen, effectively hidden, perhaps in Northern Pakistan, like Bin Laden."

The News Corp. executive chairman didn't stop there.

It's also not the first time Murdoch has used his Twitter feed to weigh in on topical issues. Last month, Murdoch tweeted his seeming denial of the existence of global warming. The reason? "Wild" winter weather.

On Sunday, Malaysian police searched the homes of the pilots of the Boeing 777 a day after investigators concluded the plane's disappearance was not an accident.
