Why would they have any reason to doubt?

It doesn't actually say for certain that "Kirk" did it, and that isn't actually a trace, or so it appears. I think @ahlawat meant a trace to find out the actual person who did this. I doubt that will be easy to do unless the hacker was careless and left behind clues, such as not hiding his/her IP address via a proxy/VPN.

I certainly hope this person's caught and their Bitcoins confiscated.

Saw it too, it was a great astonishing misery for Twitter.

I wonder if they hold on. This is a serious hacked, I will monitor the progress of this news.
