Twitter deals with thousands of hacking attempts on a daily basis, and one attempt that occurred last month left the owner of username @N high and dry.
Owned by Naoki Hiroshima, he lost the Twitter account after a hacker got access to his websites through GoDaddy, and threatened to delete all data if he wasn’t given access to the @N Twitter account.
According to Hiroshima, he was once offered $50,000 for the username, and yesterday afternoon shared some good news:
Order has been restored.

It seems that Twitter’s investigation fared well for Hiroshima, and the buzz surrounding the Twitter account likely helped to raise its value even more.
So, how much is @N worth now? How about 50k BTC?
