>Kevin Butler retweets PS3’s ‘jailbreak code’

>

Recently Sony has been threating to sue anyone who is “distributing” the jailbreak code for the PlayStation 3 gaming console. 
Sony’s lawyers have recently asked a judge to subpoena Google, Twitter, and Paypal in attempt to gather information of those who have viewed or commented on, or about the jailbreak. Their request for a subpoena was denied. 
This brings us to what happened on Kevin Butler’s twitter page; Kevin Butler is Sony’s (fictional) spokesperson, and holds many (also fictional) positions within the company. It seems Sony is trying to keep their VP of tweet-relations out of the loop when it comes to this very real news event. 
Travis La Marr (aka @exiva) tweeted the PS3 METLDR root key at Bulter with the challange “Come at me”, Bulter’s reaction was to retweet the entire thing, confusing it with a Battleship reference. Obviously someone at Sony realized the mistake, and the tweet has since been removed.

    >Dumb shit ever. Sony should like they take with other consoles that was hacked/cracked. Do nothing. If PSN was really awesome maybe they could do something but it isn't.
