On Tuesday, December 29, the Twitter account of Scott Wozniak was reported by many of his fans and followers as hacked. His Twitter account with almost 300,000 followers seemed to have been changed by the alleged hackers. All of his tweets appeared to have been purged from the account, and the alleged hacker(s) began tweeting derogatory comments, including referring to the popular YouTuber Keemstar, whose real name is Daniel Keem, as a “flamboyant f*****”. The account also used the n-word.



 



 

It would appear that whoever hacked the Twitter account seemed to be promoting the services of a website called tw33tr.com. The website claims to be “the only real scrapper that brings results on the market,” without elaborating on things further. The account also tweeted links to several Discord servers.

Who is Scott Wozniak?

Wozniak is a YouTube creator and the host of the popular gaming-centric YouTube show/channel ‘Scott the Woz’. The 23-year-old’s content mostly revolves around video games — topics like console revisions, cheat codes, etc. He also plays Super Mario Galaxy, Night Trap, and more on his stream. His videos cover reviews, editorials, retrospectives, among other things.

Speaking to Innovation & Tech Today in 2018, Wozniak said, “Well ever since I was a little kid, I always loved creating. I used to draw a lot, whether it be cartoons I watched on TV or my own creations. This evolved into me writing short stories in second and third grade,” adding that he was inspired to “turn my stories into videos after I received a digital camera for Christmas in 2006.”

He said, “In addition to putting the videos I made on YouTube, I was fundamentally creating a media empire for like 20 of my classmates to see. I heavily got into video production around this time as it was a ton of fun for me to create something from start to finish and put it on YouTube for the world to see — or for around 50 viewers at the time. Over time, I slowed down on making my magazine, running the website, and creating YouTube videos, until I fully stopped production around 2011-2012.”

His fans, upon seeing his account being hacked, began reporting it on Twitter. One Twitter user wrote, “TO EVERYONE READING THIS. Report @/TW33TR_com. They hacked Scott's account and are currently defacing it entirely. Below is an image that'll show you which option to press when you report. Please RT to share this around!!”

One Twitter user said, “Someone hacked Scott the Woz twitter, deleted all his tweets including the ones for charity just to promote their s***ty discord and cryptocurrency! I advise you report scotts account for being hacked so he can get it back and report the chuds who's shouting out themself to gtfo.” Another Twitter user said, “Imagine hacking Scott the Woz, literally the coolest f***in content creator, to promote your scam site, your unfunny friends and then tweet slurs.” One Twitter user said, “Actually, real talk: it’s always garbage seeing people’s accounts get hacked. With it happening to Scott the Woz though? Why? He’s been friendly and trying to be helpful, and then some hacker comes in, deletes everything, tries to self-promote his hacking, and slurs. This sucks.”
