This reveals that the attack was not orchestrated by a country or group of sophisticated hackers. Instead, by a loose collection of mid-level hackers who claim to be their late teens to early 20s. The hacker lol and his compatriots came Forward to explain their involvement in the Attack on Twitter. Specifically, they claim they that they only participated up until about 3:30 PM Eastern standard Time.

Up until that point the accounts that the hacker Kirk was breaking into stealing were low-profile. Indeed, the reason the other four hackers are all because they had all coveted these unique user names. However, once Kirk began accessing high profile accounts they immediately drew from the Attack on Twitter. The four hackers provided clinical data to corroborate their stories which was later by several independence sources. While these four have answered why they were involved in the attack motivations of Kirk the primary hacker remain unknow.
