‘Anonymous’ Hacker Brags On Twitter And Gets Caught

We imagine that one of the hardest parts about being an ‘Anonymous’ hacker is remaining anonymous. We’re not talking about shielding your identity from authorities, as they seem to have that pretty wrapped up, we mean not bragging to folks that you’re one of the masterminds behind the mayhem. Seems a few hackers struggle with just that – like Anonymous hacker, John Anthony Borell III. He got sloppy on Twitter and now he’s in a world of trouble for it.
