Twitter Hack Explained

Official accounts of prominent celebrities like Elon Musk, Barack Obama, Bill Gates, Kim Kardashian and various others were hacked to promote a bitcoin scam.

As per reports, over $100,000 in Bitcoins have been scammed from users during this hack.

Big time scam from a scale perspective. And Coinbase came to the rescue to stop another $280K in btc transactions from adding to the already-scammed.

I find it very surprising when platforms like twitter get hacked. And even more shocking to me is the fact that people continue getting scammed.
