Hacker takes over Twitter account of Oculus CEO, has a good laugh

This time it's the account of Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe, whose Twitter account is apparently still under the control of an unknown hacker, who used it to send a string of pranks, including the "announcement" of a new Oculus CEO. 

The hacker, who appears to be this Twitter user,  changed Iribe's cover photo and his bio (which says "im not testing ya security im just havin a laugh" — a reference to a recent string of celebrity Twitter hacks). 

In the last tweet, posted minutes ago at the time of this writing, the hacker proclaims he'll give Iribe his Twitter back if he gets a free Oculus Rift so he can "watch porn the cool way." Somewhat crude, but not an entirely unreasonable demand. 

Just like most of the hacks we've seen over the past few weeks, this one also seems to be related to a reuse of an old password. In one tweet, the hacker reprimands Iribe for using "the same pass for 4 years."

The list of high-profile folks who had their Twitter hacked recently include Mark Zuckerberg, Drake, Katy Perry and Evan Williams.
