Last night, some hackers hacked verified Twitter accounts of popular celebrities and personalities such as Bill Gates, Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Kanye West, and others and made millions within 30 minutes in bitcoin scam.
The hackers did not hack the above Twitter accounts only, they hacked verified accounts of Uber, Apple and others with messages trapping people into their bitcoin scam.
Bill Gates’ people reacted in time to the bitcoin scam message and made it clear that it wasn’t from Gates.
“We can confirm that this tweet was not sent by Bill Gates. This appears to be part of a larger issue that Twitter is facing. Twitter is aware and working to restore the account.”
Twitter Support account was also hacked but Twitter later gained the account back and made it known that there is a breach in their security of which they are working to stop the attacks.
Reports say more than $53,000 were made from the bitcoin scam last night by the hackers.
