Justin Bieber launches Twitter war

Teen popstar deals with hackers
A popular teen beat combo artist famous amongst ten year olds has gotten his revenge on a hacker by publishing his phone number on Twitter.

Justin Bieber, 16, has over 4.5 million followers on the social networking site. He posted Detroit teenager Kevin Kristopik's number on Twitter and added “Everyone call me :) or text”. It was quickly re-tweeted among Bieber's followers before being taken down.

The posting was in revenge for Kristopik hacking the twitter page of the singer's friend Ryan Butler and nicking the star's telephone number. On July 27, Kristopik tweeted "im the one who hacked ryan and got justins # (sic)". When asked on Twitter, "You hacked ryan, and now jb wants payback so he tweeted your number?" Kristopik replied, "Kinda (sic)."

Kristopik has deleted his Twitter account after posting “, @justinbieber is a d**k. (sic)”. He says he is still a fan of the star but publishing the phone number was “so low”. Apparently his iPhone was being inundated with calls. With this in mind we can't see what he is complaining about, as iPhone users only get rung by their mums.
