A 22-year-old UK national was arrested today in Spain for his role in hacking Twitter’s internal network and hijacking high-profile accounts in July last year. From a report: Joseph O’Connor, 22, was arrested today in the city of Estepona, in southern Spain, by Spanish National Police pursuant to a US arrest warrant. O’Connor marks the fourth man linked to the Twitter 2020 hack, after three men were charged and detained on July 31, last year. O’Conner, who went online as “j0e,” worked with the other three to gain access to one of Twitter’s internal Slack channels.
