A 17-year-old Australian named Pearce Delphin confessed to being the Twitter hacker that caused chaos this month. The five-hour mess led to the depletion of White House Press Secretary’s Twitter feed and also led various Twitter users to Japanese porn sites.

The Twitter hacker account (@zzap) revealed a security flaw in the system and was able to easily hack into the system to cause a worldwide mess. The flaw was created with JavaScript coding that featured a mouseover image and led to such disarray. Hopefully others will not follow suit in this social media hacking as this isn't the first time the Twitter site has been abused. Stats for Unauthorized Hacker Tweets Trending: Older & Chilly
