A teenager who hacked Twitter and stole Bitcoin from users has been sentenced to three years in prison


Graham Evan Clark, the teenager who hacked Twitter last year to steal Bitcoin, has pleaded guilty to 30 counts. Consequently, he was sentenced to three years imprisonment.

Clark, the 17-year-old, hacked into the Twitter platform and used high-profile accounts like Elon Mush, Tim Cook, Barack Obama, and even Joe Biden, to trick the social network's users.

Clark carried out the fraud jointly with Nima Fazli and Mason Sheppard, who were also accused of federal crimes. As mentioned earlier, when the young man did the hack he was a minor. Therefore, he was released from a sentence that exceeded the ten years he spent as an adult.

 We remember that in this hack, affected accounts posted tweets ensuring that if you send an amount of Bitcoin money, they will send you that double amount.

After the scam, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey announced that he was taking steps to address the incident and prevent it from happening again.

We all feel very bad for this to happen. We are making the diagnosis and we will participate as much as we can when we have a more complete understanding of what exactly happened ... ”Dorsey wrote in July 2020.

For now, Graham Evan Clark will be serving his sentence in a US youth prison.
