Twitter communication tweeted that they were aware that their CEOs account was compromised and that they had began investigations.

They later tweeted that his account was now secure while also assuring tweeps that their systems hadn’t been compromised.

They later pointed out that an unknown telecom provider that Jack uses linked to his Twitter account was compromised adding that there wa security oversight by the provider that they allowed the hackers to post the tweets via text.

The Twitter Client used to post the tweets via text was revealed to be CloudHopper.

This hacker group is an upcoming one that recently hacked Twitter accounts of various YouTubers such as Shane Dawson and James Charles together with King Bach. The group was also reportedly behind gaining access to the Gmail account of the late Edmond Amofah.

Many victims put the blame on AT&T’s employees who illegally SIM swap users accounts leading to the breaches.
