Coordinated operation for sure. Someone hacked a Twitter employees account, which probably allowed them to not even have to worry about 2FA:

Twitter stock about to plummet today.

They just hacked Obama's account too, lol. Everyone speculating Trump is next.

Shut the fuckin thing down, lol. Wow! This isn't a case where the hacked an account(s), they've literally hacked Twitter itself.

Oh wow! They hacked the most prolific terrorist in the world's account, see below:

Basically, it would appear they basically have root access to anything internal on Twitter regarding user auth. Why on earth twitter.com hasn't been pulled offline many minutes ago is a huge unforced error.

Why would anyone employed by twitter have access to passwords?

Why would anyone employed by twitter have access to passwords?
 

Passwords are not stored in plaintext.

The hack/exploit probably allows them to bypass user auth entirely.

E.g. Perhaps they figured out a way to reset a password to an email that the hacker specifies.

They definitely found a way to hack Twitter internally, in such a way that entirely sidesteps password auth and 2FA.

So, when do I get my money
