Submission How a 4.2 earthquake became a 6.6 earthquake->

mehrotra.akash writes: As has often happened in recent times, Twitter was the first media platform to carry news about the 11.28pm earthquake, as shaken tweeples in Delhi told the world how their rooms rattled in the tremors.

An official statement on the site (in Japanese) explains So-Net has terminated exchanges of points, and asked customers to change their passwords. The story translator says the total lost was "about 100,000 yen," or $1,224. Google's translation of the site reads that as "approximately 10 million yen," or $122,384, which is probably why we shouldn't trust Google Translate.

And it was Brute Forced!!
