Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Joe Biden, Jeff Bezos, Barack Obama, Kanye West & More Twitter Accounts Hacked

There has been a breach in Twitter system as some of the biggest names in politics, entertainment and technology, including Joseph R. Biden Jr., Kanye West, Bill Gates and Elon Musk, appeared to have had their Twitter accounts hacked on Wednesday.

The accounts sent messages related to cyptocurrency, with most of the messages promising to double the money of anyone who sent Bitcoin to a specific cryptocurrency wallet.




According to the New York Times, within hours the tweets appearing, nearly 300 people had fallen for the scam, sending more than $100,000 to the wallet.

The breach is the latest in a series of security failures that Twitter has experienced in recent years. Last August, Twitter Inc.’s chief executive Jack Dorsey’s personal account was hacked and used to send erratic and racist tweets.

Back in 2017, a number of prominent accounts were hacked and used to send out pro-Turkish messages.




Twitter representatives didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment. The story is still developing, we’ll keep you updated.
