A 25-year-old unemployed Frenchman has been arrested for hacking into the Twitter accounts of President Barack Obama and Britney Spears, the pop star. The man, known by his online pseudonym is Hacker Croll, was arrested on Tuesday in central France, where he lives with his parents. French police and FBI agents had been tracking him for months.
The man is accused of breaking into dozens of Twitter and Google accounts and posting screen shots of private pages on online hacker forums.

Did he actually do it or did he photoshop something to look like he did? I suspect even claiming to break into the presidents accounts will get you into trouble. It would be interesting to see a case through in which the only evidence is fake but created to look real by the criminal him/herself.

He is a script-kiddie
He is obviously a skilled social engineer (wreaking havoc on Twitter for over a year now) but since he didn't use some sort of "1337" xss attack or an SQL injection he gets stuck with that tired old moniker?
