So, the whole attack costs just about $100, or even lower if he got some bulk order discount...

Just see how many blockchain.info account thefts are reported every week. If they can pocket a part of it, it is far more than $100.

The people behind the Twitter account might not've been behind any successful hacks though.

You'd be surprised. If someone tweets them asking for help they could sucker them into messaging them their account and password etc or linking to a phishing site.
