Hacker tweeted racist terms from Jack’s account. It is not yet known how the account has been compromised but it seems as the tweets are coming from a source called Cloudhopper. Cloudhopper is the name of the company that Twitter acquired a long time ago to help bolster their SMS service. Looks like the hackers are Tweeting via the old SMS service.

Hacker after gaining access has also tweeted a link of Discord server in which they asked people to Join. This group seems to be the same group that attacked a number of YouTube creators & influencers last week on twitter including James Charles, Shane Dawson and famous comedian King Bach.

Many of these YouTubers & influencers at the time suggested their accounts has been breached following a SIM card swap conducted by AT&T employees.

“We are working with law enforcement, have restored the customers’ service, and discussed ways to secure the account,” an AT&T spokesperson – as reported by The Verge
