Social media platform, Twitter has been forced to lock down all verified accounts from publishing new tweets.
This became a necessary after number of high profile Twitter accounts were taken over, including Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Apple, Jeff Bezos, and Kanye West.
Each of the accounts displayed a message saying they wanted to “give back” by doubling the bitcoin that they are sent. The messages all appear to have the same bitcoin wallet address.
Meanwhile, Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey in reaction noted that investigation into what happened was ongoing, and later shared an update.
