Saturday night, a tweet appeared then quickly vanished on Justin Bieber’s verified Twitter account: “everyone call me 248-XXX-XXXX 🙂 or text”. The number belonged to a teen in Detroit, and Justin apparently tweeted it out of revenge.
“The number belongs to a Detroit teenager Kevin Kristopik. At around 1am Sunday morning Kristopik tweeted “Thanks for giving out my # @justinbieber.” Two hours, later, he posted this video of his phone blowing up with calls and texts from Bieber’s 4.5 million Twitter followers”:
“it appears to be payback on some level for Kristopik hacking Twitter account of a childhood friend of Justin’s named Ryan Butler, and using it to get Justin’s phone number. On July 27th, Kristopik tweeted “im the one who hacked ryan and got justins #.” When asked on Twitter, “You hacked ryan, and now jb wants payback so he tweeted your number?” Kristopik replied, “Kinda.”
