According to Reuters, former Twitter employees have revealed that over 1000 employees and outside contractors have sufficient access to hack high-profile accounts, as occurred last week with a Bitcoin scam.

"That sounds like there are too many people with access," said Edward Amoroso, former chief security officer at AT&T. Responsibilities among the staff should have been split up, with access rights limited to those responsibilities and more than one person required to agree to make the most sensitive account changes. "In order to do cyber security right, you can't forget the boring stuff."
