Multiple verified Twitter accounts of public figures and companies were hacked and tweeted out a bitcoin scam. Several accounts include Apple, President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden, Tesla, and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, rapper Kanye West, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, and Uber. This lasted for more than two hours, and Twitter took extreme measures to prevent other verified accounts from being compromised by disabling the users to send new tweets and locking some users out of their accounts. Twitter is looking into the incident, and the FBI has launched its own investigation, so there’s sure to be more news about the unprecedented attack on the social media platform.
