Hackers take over Obama, Musk, Apple, and dozens more Twitter accounts in massive Bitcoin scam

It’s a more bizarre day on Twitter than usual. The Twitter accounts of several prominent companies and celebrities were illicitly commandeered today, in an apparent effort to scam some of their millions of followers out of their hard-earned bitcoin. It’s by far the most widespread Twitter hack we’ve seen, even if the accounts were quickly restored to normal (TNW).

The list reads like a who’ s who of famous people, companies, and cryptocurrency-related services. So far we’ve been able to identify at least these accounts as having posted fraudulent tweets:

Barack Obama, Elon Musk, Apple, Joe Biden, Bill Gates, Wiz Khalifa, Warren Buffet, Uber, Jeff Bezos, MrBeast, Floyd Mayweather, ‘God’ (@TheTweetOfGod), Mike Bloomberg, XXXTentacion, Kim Kardashian, CoinDesk, Gemini, Gate.io, Cash App, Binance, CZ_Binance, Tron, Justin Sun, Ripple, Charlie Lee and Coinbase.

TIP OF THE DAY
Experienced or Not, Always Take Baby Steps
Experienced or Not, Always Take Baby Steps

When you are starting a new campaign, always start with a small budget. When you achieve your goals, increase the budget but always remember: the face that the campaign performs well when spent $25 a day, doesn’t mean that it will work for $250 or $2,500. Take baby steps and grow slowly and when you see that the campaign’s goal has been reach, increase the budget.
