Hackonomics: Stolen Twitter accounts ‘more valuable’ than credit cards

Quote:
Stolen Twitter accounts now fetch more than credit cards on the cybercrime black market, according to a new report released by the RAND Corporation. The report is the first in a series commissioned by Juniper Networks.

"Markets for Cybercrime Tools and Stolen Data: Hacker's Bazaar" explains that a Twitter account now costs more to purchase than a stolen credit card, because Twitter account credentials potentially have a greater yield.
