Submission + - Obama's Twitter Account "Hacked" ( 1

Oxford_Comma_Lover writes: A 24-year-old living with his mother in France was arrested for "hacking" into Obama's twitter accounts. Apparently he guesses the answer to a question related to password recovery in order to break into the accounts of famous people; he has no computer science training or financial motive. He posted screenshots to a few boards and twitter found out within a few hours, either from a tip or from noticing when someone from France logs onto twitter as the President of the United States. (He did not actually tweet as POTUS, but just wanted to show he could break into the account.)
