(Reuters) - The U.S. Department of Justice said on Friday that two more people have been charged in relation to a July 15 Twitter TWTR.N hack that took over the accounts of VIPs including former President Barack Obama and billionaire Bill Gates.
In a statement, the Justice Department identified the men as Mason Sheppard, of Bognor Regis in the United Kingdom, and Nima Fazeli of Orlando, Florida.
A third person, a 17-year-old, has been charged in relation to the hack by Florida prosecutors.
