The Twitter accounts of Barack Obama, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian and several others were hacked on late Wednesday night. The Twitter accounts of some of the U.S.’s most prominent political and business leaders, from Barack Obama and Joe Biden to Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, were hacked in an apparent effort to promote a Bitcoin scam.
The scam posted tweets on behalf of Gates and Musk stated a Bitcoin wallet address along with the promise of sending back double the amount of BTC if a user sends a certain amount to the designated wallet first. Thescammers posted similar Bitcoin-scamming tweets for the second time from both Gates’ and Musk’s accounts, after their first tweets were deleted.
