LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – 12-21-2020 ( — How Twitter allowed a hacker to Hijack my verified profile and become me.

On December 2nd, 2020 I noticed that I had been logged out of my Twitter account @AllenForrest, which is verified, and I’ve had this account since 2009. I thought it was strange that that happened. Upon logging back in, Twitter alerted a notice that I didn’t have an account with them. I quickly realized what was happening with my account, so I reported the hacking. I immediately went only to submitted all our federally trademarked information about the account. The Forrest Group quickly emailed Jack Dorsey, Vijaya Gadde, their legal team members, and top-level executives to alert them about the theft. No one from the legal team never contacted me back, not even the Twitter support team, even after submitting the necessary legal documents.

My Twitter account is used to promote our music and products for over a decade, and now the hacker has decided to delete ten years’ worth of work from us. Twitter doesn’t care as I’ve submitted legal documents showing ownership, I introduced the original account registration from 2009, and many updates from the account until the hacking occurred.

Twitter promised to help small black-owned businesses but allows this hacker to destroy one by stealing the profile and deleting all their hard work. “I can’t believe Twitter will allow someone to steal a federally trademarked brand,” Say’s Allen Forrest, the original account holder @AllenForrest. We don’t know if we will ever get our account back, and this hacker will get to impersonate Allen Forrest, which could be detrimental to your small business.

As of today, there has been no response from Twitter why they are allowing this to happen. Please everyone who reads this report the stolen profile.
