Wow looks like both @elonmusk and @BillGates accounts hacked. Both with same typical send me BTC and I will send it back doubled. Same BTC address.

Craziest thing to me is that has already had 200 transactions sent to that address.

242 transactions as of now... 6.33821608 BTC sent to it. $58,360.39

Wow looks like still happening to other accounts.

Idk twitters policy on verified.. but I would assume they force 2FA.

So I wonder if a 3rd party with oauth creds in common that got breached?

Good luck @Twitter ops! May your keystrokes be swift and true. ⚔️

With all of the politicians being hacked and not the whitehouse based accounts..

I wonder.. If they have a certificate based authentication in place for those accounts to help prevent anyone else from being able to post.

I can see such a thing being requested

@geekgonecrazy Maybe, however, you'd assume Obama would also have that level of protection as well.

@danarel true.. although from an impact standpoint the sitting president would probably be a bigger target and more of a concern. Especially since he’s got it at his fingertips constantly

@geekgonecrazy I suspect they put extra layers of protection on it after that rogue employee deleted Trump's account for an hour

@tomasino true! I totally forgot about that. If true that the admin panel got hacked.. then they may have added something there to prevent this

@geekgonecrazy I guess if Jack Dorsey's account can get compromised then anyone's can 😅

@basil did his get hacked? 😬 I didn't see that one. I saw a bunch of the other blue checks though

@geekgonecrazy not in this incident. Was a good few months back. Some sort of SMS vulnerability on that occasion if I recall.

@basil ouch! Makes total sense.. SMS its mega vulnerable for 2FA. 😬

@geekgonecrazy entirely possible that some or even most of it is the scammer themselves doing staged transactions to make the address look more legitimate

@sir yeah I’ve seen that theory a few places as well.
