    I wanted to help just like everyone else. Since I don't know how to 'hack the hacker', I followed the path @Grilled suggested.

    I've gotten my best responses to my complaints by going to higher ups within the company (I recently got a refund voucher after emailing the CEO of American Airlines)

    Anyway, I digress: here are email formats I've checked and verified for some twitter execs. Although, they may all be on vacay right now, I hope this may help:

    Chief Legal Officer: Vijaya Gadde ([email protected])
    Chief Information Security Officer: Michael Coates (first initial + lastname @twitter.com), mcoates
    Chief Operations Officer: Anthony Noto (firstname.lastname @twitter.com)
    VP of Product: Keith Coleman (first initial + last name @twitter.com)
    I believe the CEOs address may be [email protected], but I wasn't able to confirm that one.

    The domain king appears to have also taken action by removing his credit card details as well.

    Please do.

    As @Grilled just said " We need human at Twitter to catch wind of what's going on"

    The guy that stole that account is silly. I had conversations over two days and he just wants money and that account. He knows very little about domains.

    He responds using a free trial email...hi at topmail dot com. He has changed the Twitter email to li*** at topmail dot com.

    That's as much as I could get. I also have his wallet ID. That's it.

    I believe he has done this before. I believe he is not in the us.

    All of that information was posted already. I posted his wallet id in my first post...lol

    JagG posted his email info with the [email protected] also a while back when he was trying to hack the hacker.

    Maybe you or others arent reading the whole thread and i get it. Its getting long.

    Let me start from scratch here.

    Here is his wallet id, that i foolishly sent the BTC to...

    1KBBFEkudkrcEb1McS16BS3ubGuR47JX6t

    I was hoping someone could find out any info that leads to his wallet id since there has to be other transactions to this wallet.

    Also on another note, @Acroplex said Richard Laus account was hacked and he got it back. If anyone has contact with him, (he did post his twittter handle @lau) maybe he can give us that one tip, that one twitter account to reach out to, that one phone # to call in order to speed this insanity up.

    That is one ugly looking hacker, i'd pay what he is asking for just so he can disappear - he can also keep the account.

    This is a damn shame. Really unbelievable the lack of response. I find it so hard to believe nobody at twitter heard any of us thru all we have tried so far.

    Dont they use their own platform???

    Best of luck to TheDomains.com with their lawsuit.

    Seems now the hacker sold Mikes Twitter Handle to a 3rd party making much harder to ever get back!

    So @thedomainscom loses 10 YEARS of WORK!! 10 YEARS!! GONE!! This sucks! Can't support this company or platform any longer!

    Where is the outrage?? Lift a damn finger and start RETWEETING some of this stuff.

    So what's the condition of the "Domain Industry" if we as an INDUSTRY can't come together to Help Mike Berkens @thedomainscom get his REAL @Twitter account back and his 10 YEARS of WORK?

    It's DEAD!!!

    "Likes" don't help. Only RETWEETS! #Domains @TwitterSupport #Twitter #Ransom

    Our job is to circulate and get some attention to this very serious matter!

    All help appreciated!!

    And for those that want to minimize/excuse this, GET OUT OF THE WAY!! You have no value if you don't want to do something constructive!

    Thank you!!

    Important Precautions to take when buying ... they may even want to sell some (fake) good domain names and trick you with ID TW @TheDomains

    This is absolutely outrageous. I too have made contact with Twitter and whoever I can to voice my concerns.

    If enough of us show our outrage surely they must do something!? Absolutely pathetic from Twitter. Laughable company to ever invest in in the future.

    Hate to say this folks if you serve papers on twitter your just lost any connection of getting twitter handle back.
    Its the wrong way doing things. When you create account its your job to make sure account is safe. There is also safe factors put in place to protect your account from being changed over to another email account.

    Always make sure your twitter account password is changed over every couple of months dont use same password as you use for linkedin, Facebook or another social media accounts.

    Looks like Twitter is paying some attention to this as you know what I mentioned about when you hit forgot lost password you see a partial email address, well now trying that with the @TheDomains account does not work, I tried putting in any old password and it says there is suspicious activity on this account. So maybe they are getting close to righting this.

    School districts expressing their frustration,

    Trouble Reaching Twitter
    The Clark County spokesman declined to specify exactly how long Foothill's account was compromised, but it appeared to be under external control for well over three days.

    And in remarks at a news conference that were reported by local station WPTV, St. Lucie superintendent Wayne Gent fumed at how long it took Twitter to remove the racist messages posted from his district's account.

    "I was mad as hell," Gent said during the news conference. "There's not a hotline that you can contact or a hotline that you can call. It's done through emails, it's done through texting and we could not get a response from [Twitter.]"


    Levin of EdTech Strategies said that's unfortunate, but not surprising. Platforms such as Twitter are awash in offensive, abusive, and otherwise problematic content, and they are even getting called to testify before Congress for their roles in enabling foreign governments to spread misinformation and meddle in elections. And their strategy of relying on algorithms and technology to respond to problems doesn't appear to be working very well, he added.

    So it is a widespread problem at Twitter i see now. Matter of fact i do remember Mcafee saying something about a coin that wasnt him endorsing. I just thought someone else made an account with his name and image trying to pump their own coin. Didnt know HE was hacked as well.

    I would think shareholders cant be too happy about this. Once they start selling off and jumping ship because of bad publicity plus lawsuits maybe twitter will get their $hit together.

    This is just one of a 100s examples how they do it. In this example, hkr claims to be selling 32 millions of Twitter accounts.
