Arrests in Twitter Hack

Florida law enforcement has arrested a seventeen-year-old in Florida who they say is the “linchpin” of a hack that resulted in multiple hacked Twitter accounts in July. President Obama, Elon Musk, who himself has been subject to federal investigations for SEC violations, and Joe Biden are among those whose accounts were briefly taken over.

The hackers posted instructions for people to donate Bitcoin, but virtually no one did so and very little money – a paltry $180,000 – was actually stolen. Nonetheless, Twitter and various “blue check” celebrities on it were embarrassed, and so, rather than arrest all the people who have been insider-trading on Donald Trump’s corrupt efforts to fund a cure to the Coronavirus, the FBI felt it was very important to pursue some young computer nerds.
