US teen charged as 'mastermind' in epic Twitter hack


Prosecutors file 30 felony counts against a suspected 17-year-old "mastermind" of an epic Twitter hack, along with two others who allegedly helped hijack celebrity accounts to swindle people out of more than $100,000 in a cryptocurrency scheme.

"Make no mistake," says Hillsborough State Attorney Andrew Warren, "this was not an ordinary 17-year-old, this was a highly sophisticated attack on a magnitude not seen before. It could have been an extremely high amount of loss."
