The cybercriminal, who uses the Ryushi nickname on the darknet, has now opened up “test access” to thousands of Twitter accounts to prove that there was indeed a data leak. The media reports that the “test fragment” of the database includes accounts of Donald Trump Jr. and many famous people.

The hacker claims that the company faces a fine of $276 million for leaking the company’s data. The only way to avoid it, according to the cybercriminal, is to buy data from him.

Earlier, the private data of 5.4 million Twitter users was in the hands of cybercriminals.
