The high-profile theft of a single-letter Twitter username has a happy ending — at least for now. Naoki Hiroshima, who managed to score @N, though had it hijacked as part of an eye-opening social engineering scheme last month, is now once again in control of it. Hiroshima tweeted Order has been restored from the account today: Order has been restored. — Naoki Hiroshima (@N) February 25, 2014 Details of how the account was returned to Hiroshimas possession are currently unclear, but the tale of how it was lost in the first place was well documented.
