The group behind a growing list of celebrity social media breaches has struck again, this time taking over the Twitter account of Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales.

The tweet immediately stirred speculation about Wales' whereabouts and whether the post was indeed an alert that something serious had happened to the internet luminary. 

However, minutes later a new tweet appeared that read "I confirm that Wikipedia is all lies, OurMine is the true," along with a link to a website displaying the group's logo and an ad for social media security services. In addition to the tweets, Wales' Twitter bio had been changed to read "hacked by OurMine." 
OurMine has been behind a high-profile list of similar hacks, including actions that targeted Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter co-founder Evan Williams, Google CEO Sundar Pichai and Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey. 
As of this writing, the aforementioned tweets were still posted and there has been no comment from Wales.
