Well, He Was Just Seventeen

The Verge: Three people have been charged for Twitter’s huge hack, and a Florida teen is in jail. “He’s being charged as an adult — ‘This was not an ordinary 17-year old,’ said the state attorney — and the press conference made clear that law enforcement is considering how bad consequences of the hack could have been, beyond the $100,000-plus in bitcoin that the teen is alleged to have scammed out of unsuspecting Twitter users.” (He’s an ordinary 17 year-old in one way. He wasn’t too hard to catch.)
