Naoki Hiroshima gets the @N Twitter username back

Posted Feb 25, 2014

Naoki Hiroshima was known for owning the Twitter username @N before a hacker extorted it out of him it by holding his GoDaddy domain names hostage.

The hacker explained how he was able to steal his GoDaddy login credentials. Apparently, the hacker fooled staff at both PayPal and GoDaddy into giving away login information.

It sounded like PayPal, GoDaddy, and Twitter had to work in conjunction to make this work. “Order has been restored.”
