A 17-year-old man was accused on Friday of 30 criminal charges for the massive hacking of the social network Twitter, according to the Friday prosecutor's office of Florida, southeastern United States.

Graham Ivan Clark "was the author of the recent Twitter attack," the state attorney's office said in a statement, although it is not yet known whether he worked alone or with a group of hackers, according to data published by the AFP agency.

The young man was arrested Friday morning in Tampa, on the west coast of Florida, where he resides by FBI agents involved in the case.

For its part, the agency said it raised more than $ 100,000 in one day due to the scam to the social network Twitter in which it managed to violate hundreds of profiles of users and celebrities worldwide such as Barack Obama, Bill Gates and Elon Musk. .

Since the crime was carried out with cryptocurrencies, in this case Bitcoin, the authorities believe that it will be difficult to trace and recover as a result of the scam.
