Twitter said a total of 130 user accounts were targeted in the latest attack, out of which only 45 verified accounts were exploited to publish scam tweets. It also mentioned that the attackers accessed Direct Message inboxes of at least 36 accounts, whereas only eight accounts' information was downloaded using the "Your Twitter Data" archive tool.

"There is a false belief within the criminal hacker community that attacks like the Twitter hack can be perpetrated anonymously and without consequence," said U.S. Attorney Anderson.

"We've significantly limited access to our internal tools and systems. Until we can safely resume normal operations, our response times to some support needs and reports will be slower," Twitter added.
