CLEAN:Frenchman who cracked Obama's Twitter speaks up

A Frenchman who broke into Barack Obama and Britney Spears' Twitter feeds insisted on Thursday he is no hacker but a kind pirate seeking to expose security weaknesses. The 23-year-old, who was arrested on Tuesday after an operation by French police and FBI agents, is now on bail and back at his parents' home in central France, where he told the AFPTV how he got into the popular micro-blogging site.
