Twitter accounts hacked; Obama, Biden, Musk, Bezos and others

Popular microblogging platform, twitter encountered a major breach as verified accounts of top and prominent individuals were hacked by Bitcoin scammers.

Those whose accounts were hacked includes; Jeff Bezos, Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Elon Musk, Ware Buffet, Bill Gates, Kanye West and others.

Official accounts of Uber and Apple were also affected during the course of the breach.

Some of the tweets were swiftly deleted but there appeared to be a struggle to regain control of the accounts.

In the case of billionaire Telsa Chief Executive Elon Musk, one tweet soliciting cryptocurrency was removed and, sometime later, another one appeared.

In a statement, Twitter said, “We are aware of a security incident impacting accounts on Twitter. We are investigating and taking steps to fix it. We will update everyone shortly”.

“You may be unable to Tweet or reset your password while we review and address this incident,” Twitter said.
