    No need to get him more publicity:
    1. YouTube will restore it in an instant
    2. VEVO will improve their security
    3. Twitter loves closing accounts related to this stuff
    He did a great job getting through and can now enjoy his piece of the fame cake for a bit. And as we all know every good company needs to be attacked every now and again to patch their security ;)

    What on earth would they win by saying how terrible their security is? Their videos get mad amounts of views and money anyways, deleting them just stops that from happening...

    Least he didn't really do anything bad to the accounts, not that I've heard so far anyway.
