A British man has been charged in the United States in connection with a Twitter hack last summer that compromised the s of prominent politicians, celebrities and technology moguls, the Justice Department said Wednesday. A criminal complaint filed in federal court in the Northern District of California does not identify the popular TikTok personality whose was compromised, but the date in the charging document matches up with the date that Addison Rae — who has about 82 million followers — revealed that she had been hacked.
The bogus tweets asked followers of the high-profile s to send Bitcoin payments.
A Florida teenager was sentenced in March to three years in prison for his role in the hacking operation. Graham Ivan Clark pleaded guilty to multiple fraud charges as part of a deal with Hillsborough County prosecutors.
Andrew Warren, the Florida state attorney who prosecuted Clark, said in an interview Wednesday he still considers him to be the mastermind of the plot. Warren said Clark was involved in the social engineering and hacking to get access to the Twitter s, as well as selling the s and sending out the tweets. Prosecutors have said the plot originated in an online forum for people looking to obtain social media usernames that carry some prestige. Twitter, Instagram and TikTok earlier this year said they were cracking down on s affiliated with the theft and sale of OG usernames. Copyright owned or d by Toronto Star Newspapers Limited.
