The shares gained roughly 100% over a two-day period last week, following news that Chewy (NYSE: CHWY) founder and activist investor Ryan Cohen and two of his associates would join GameStop's board of directors.

(Bloomberg) -- Citron Research suspended a scheduled live stream aimed at explaining its position on GameStop Corp. due to “too many people hacking Citron twitter,” the short seller said in a tweet Thursday.Citron’s managing partner Andrew Left was alerted by Twitter informing him that someone was trying to change his password, Left said in a phone interview.Twitter said it locked Citron’s account as a precaution and worked with the account owner to get it reinstated.
