Crypto Twitter has taken aim at the Twitter hack, suggest there is more to this attack than meets the eye.
Earlier this morning, a large-scale Twitter attack took over some of the most powerful verified Twitter accounts including Joe Biden, Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Wiz Khalifa, Warren Buffett, Mike Bloomberg, Barack Obama, and Jeff Bezos.
The attacker has posted about fake giveaways from the compromised accounts, asking for Bitcoin (BTC) payments and promising to send back double the amount received.
Many of the accounts were quick to respond to the hack with the Tweets being deleted and Twitter temporarily locking down all verified accounts until the situation has been resolved.
Twitter Support said:
“We are aware of a security incident impacting accounts on Twitter.
