Iribe’s account was taken over several days ago, with a tweet being sent out to his 16,000 followers announcing that Oculus is very excited to announce “its CEO – @Lid“. After this, the hacker @Lid went on to tweet at users and chastise Iribe for using the same pass for 4 years. Iribe’s Twitter account was reclaimed within hours, after the hacker tweeted that he could give it back in exchange for a free oculus rift “so i watch porn the cool way”. It is unknown if Iribe gave in to this demand.
