Three people have been arrested over the hacking attack on Twitter last month. Hackers accessed 130 high-profile accounts, including those of Barack Obama, Kanye West, and Amazon's CEO. The account of Apple was also breached. The hack was part of a bitcoin scam. The hackers got into Twitter's administrative tools. They then posted realistic-looking tweets that informed followers they could double any money put in a bitcoin account.

One suspect is a 19-year-old from the UK. The others are US citizens aged 17 and 22. Investigators believe the 17-year-old is the mastermind. A state attorney filed charges against him for "scamming people across America" and the fraudulent use of personal information. A lawyer told CNN: "There is a false belief within the criminal hacker community that attacks like the Twitter hack can be perpetrated anonymously and without consequence."
