Authorities say a British man, a Florida man and a Florida teen have been arrested for hacking the Twitter accounts of prominent politicians, celebrities and technology moguls earlier this month, and scamming people around the world out of more than $100,000 dollars in Bitcoin.

The 17-year-old boy was arrested earlier today in Tampa, while the adults face federal charges in California.
