America's most hated pharmaceutical exec had America's most hacked Twitter account on Sunday. "I am now a god," read one of the less vulgar posts from whomever took control of Martin Shkreli's account.
He on Monday tweeted that the account is back in his hands. Shkreli—who stepped down as CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals after his arrest last week—tells the Wall Street Journal that his email and cellphone accounts were also hacked on Sunday.
He declined to discuss details of the fraud allegations during the Journal interview and said he became a target because he had been "teasing people over the Internet." "What do you do when you have the attention of millions of people? It seemed to me like it would be fun to experiment with," he said, describing his arrest as a "real injustice." A detail from the Journal: He sat for the interview wearing the "same" gray hoodie he was photographed in after his arrest.
(Word came Monday that Shkreli was terminated from another company.)
