The same group of teenage hackers that hacked Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's Twitter and Pinterest accounts have hacked another the Twitter account of another high-profile person. This time, it's Twitter's ex-CEO, Dick Costolo . The hacker group from Saudi Arabia, dubbed OurMine, compromised Twitter account of former Twitter CEO on Sunday and managed to post three tweets on Costolo's Twitter timeline, first spotted by a Recode reporter.

Suddenly, after few hours, I got a mail from an Egyptian Hacker with nickname ' Dr .
