The perpetrators of the mega hack at messaging Twitter, the day before yesterday, have tried to attack about 130 accounts.

 

A small part of this managed to copy the profiles and post tweets. Twitter reports that it is working with the victims and that it is investigating whether “non-public data” has been stolen.

The hackers claim they had access to private messages from victims.

They took over the accounts of American presidential candidate Joe Biden, former president Barack Obama, rapper Kanye West, socialite Kim Kardashian, businessmen such as Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk and companies such as Apple and Uber.

They used it to entice people to transfer bitcoins. Calls suddenly appeared on the accounts to transfer bitcoins to a virtual account in order to get more bitcoins back.

Wilders, with 800,000 followers on Twitter, declared it “really annoying” that his Twitter account had been hacked. “I hope Twitter will fix it soon,” the politician said in a comment.
