    Oh gosh. To able to "hack" Twitter would be close to impossible, probably, even for the best computer hackers out there.

    Your best bet would probably be some social engineering "hacks".

    I know that on Twitter, it's against their ToS to squat on inactive usernames. If you want a particular username, I would email Twitter bis dev directly and ask them if you can have the username yourself. If you have a domain name registered, or better yet, a website indiciating an exact match for the Twitter username, you should be able to get it pretty easily..

    If the account hasnt been active in the past 6-9 months then they usually release the twitter name if you can prove your the named person

    i think this could be quite difficult. Maybe inactivity could result in the usernames becoming available once again. This happens also with some of the blogging platforms. Really to hack would need knowledge of the linked email address

    Actually they don't, I've tried it. The only time they'll release the sn handler is if the account has an email that isn't vertified. They'll then ask you when was the last time you logged in and if the account has zero tweets, your best bet is to estimate the logged in date by looking at the account I'D.

    likely isn't what your looking for... but this may give you a few ideas... a year or two ago one was able to hack in to hotmail accounts by attempting to log in to the account using the 5 most common password, out of a list of 2/300 emails there was always one or two who had set it as abc123 or something silly like that... one would then log in to that account scrape their contact list and repeat... if you wanted, by the end of the day you could land stupendous number of contacts (easily a million if you had the bandwidth) which you would then load into a messenger bot and then automate a script which would chat with people to market whatever you wanted.

    This will be very difficult unless you are an expert in hacking passwords and hackers don't just show up easily to introduce themselves.
