PARIS – A Frenchman will face trial after hacking into Twitter accounts, including that of U.S President Barack Obama, a French prosecutor said.

The 24-year-old man from central France was arrested on Tuesday and could face up to two years in prison in France for fraudulent access to a computer system. The arrest followed a joint operation between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the French police, according to French state prosecutor Jean-Yves Coquillat.

The man, whose name hasn’t been release, is charged with having hacked into the Twitter Inc. social-networking accounts of famous people. He did this in April 2009 after posing as a site administrator, said Mr. Coquillat. As well as Mr. Obama’s account, he hacked into that of singer Britney Spears, he said.
