Two more charged in Twitter hack case - DoJ

United States Department of Justice confirmed on Friday that two more people have been charged over the recent Twitter hack of about 130 accounts, including those of numerous high-profile personalities, over Bitcoin scam.

The department accused a 19-year-old resident of the United Kingdom of "conspiracy to commit wire fraud, conspiracy to commit money laundering, and the intentional access of a protected computer" and a 21-year-old from Orlando, Florida, of "aiding and abetting the intentional access of a protected computer."

Earlier in the day, a teenager from Tampa, Florida, has been arrested in connection to the matter.
