Twitter Accounts of Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Apple and Kanye West Hacked by Scammers (See Photos)
This is still an ongoing development.
Popular figures like the owner of Tesla, Space X, Elon Musk, famous African American rapper Kanye West, former CEO and founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates were among several high-profile celebrities as well as political and economic figures whose Twitter accounts were hacked on Wednesday as part of a cryptocurrency scam.
More people like Mike Bloomberg and Warren Buffet were also affected by this.
Both the accounts of Elon Musk and Bill Gates in their hacked accounts tweeted that they would be doubling payments of $1000 to their Bitcoin addresses .
Note that the below images were not sent by the real owners of the accounts, as they were hacked.
See the photos of below:
This is still unusual, how can the Twitter accounts of such prominent people in society be hacked, this just means that anybody can be hacked.
This is a very serious issue, so I urge all readers to discourage friends and family to not fall victim.
