As Twitchy reported on Thursday, a three-count indictment alleges that Reuters’ Matthew Keys conspired with Anonymous to hack into a Tribune Company website.

Politico reports that Keys has been suspended with pay.

This isn’t the first time Keys has been in trouble with Reuters since joining the company in 2012.

On Thursday, Keys tweeted, “I found out the same way most of you did: From Twitter.” New York magazine notes that it probably wasn’t much of a surprise.

Keys clarified his tweet today.
