Teen mastermind pleads guilty to hacking celebrity accounts

A U.S. teenager will spend three years in prison after pleading guilty to hacking high-profile Twitter accounts in a large-scale Bitcoin scam, the BBC reports. Graham Ivan Clark was 17 when he co-ordinated the scam, which hijacked the profiles of celebrities including Kim Kardashian West, Kanye West, Elon Musk, Bill Gates, and Barack Obama. Clark will be banned from using computers without permission and supervision from law enforcement. BIG Media predicts that once he gets out of jail, Clark will have no trouble finding a government job.
