Britney Spears’ Twitter Hacked By French Man Because He Hated Our Freedom

Alex Blagg / March 25, 2010

An unnamed 24-year-old French man was arrested on Tuesday for hacking into President Barack Obama’s–and more importantly–Britney Spears Twitter accounts. Oh, the damage he could have caused with access to someone’s Twitter. Thank God this menace has been nabbed!

In April of 2009, the French man hacked into both Twitter accounts by guessing the “secret” question that companies will often use to retrieve passwords for users.

The man could face up to two years in prison and a fine up to $40,000.

The man didn’t post any tweets under the accounts but took screenshots of the accounts to prove that he had successfully hacked into the accounts. Apparently, he just hacked into them to “prove he was capable” of hacking.

Dude, what is even the point of hacking into two of the world’s most powerful tweeters (yes, you heard that right) if you aren’t going to post a tweet under their name? Imagine how funny your geeky internet pals would have found it if you tweeted “b00bz b00bz b00bz!!!1!” from a famous person’s Twitter? This is exactly why the French haven’t won a war since Napoleon.
