Twitter hackers appear to take over another high-profile account

Just five days after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey's account was hacked, another appears to have been compromised by hackers.

Actress Chloe Moretz's Twitter account was tweeting expletives Wednesday before the tweets were deleted, either by Moretz or by Twitter.

The tweets were sent to more than 3.1 million people who follow the account. Trevor Duke-Moretz, the actress' older brother, said her account was hacked.

In one tweet, the account referenced "Chuckling Squad," which also claimed responsibility for Dorsey's attack last week. Tweets also included what alleged to be Dorsey's Social Security number and links to Instagram, where the hacker claimed to have posted nude photos of other celebrities. The home address of one person was also posted before the tweets were removed.

On another hacked account, owned by rapper Joey Badass, the attackers published a direct message conversation that Moretz had with the musician.

Internet celebrity James Charles and YouTuber Shane Dawson were also recently targeted in similar attacks on Twitter.

Twitter was not immediately available to comment.
