AM1280 The Patriot, with Brad Carlson, Sunday, July 26, 2020; hijacked Twitter accounts and Hollywood Hackers

Thanks to Brian Krebs’ July 16 and July 22, 2020 blog posts, and the New York Times, for more about about how somebody hijacked Twitter accounts for several celebrities. Also see what Twitter had to say.

Apparently, somebody named Kirk manipulated Twitter employees into giving him access to an internal tool to manage user accounts. He netted around $117,000. Who says crime doesn’t pay?

And then we talked about Hollywood hackers, another of my favorite topics.
