One Of PM Narendra Modi’s Twitter Accounts Was Hacked To Spread Bitcoin Scam

On Thursday, Twitter confirmed that the account of PM Narendra Modi’s personal website was compromised

On Thursday, Twitter confirmed that the account of PM Narendra Modi’s personal website was compromised and the hackers took advantage of the hack to post some tweets asking followers to donate to a relief fund with cryptocurrency.

This is the latest hack targeting high-profile Twitter users after a series of well-known accounts were hacked in July.

According to Twitter, the company knew about this incident and had taken steps to deal with the issue.

In an email, a spokeswoman of Twitter said the company was investigating and so far, it hadn’t had any information on any other accounts that might have been hacked. PM Modi’s office hasn’t said anything about the incident.

The hacked account has more than 2.5 million followers and is the official handle for the PM’s personal website and mobile application.

PM Narendra Modi has another account with over 61 million followers, which wasn’t affected by this hacking attempt.

The scamming tweets, which have been removed, asked followers to donate to what so-called PM National Relief Fund with bitcoin.

In July, hackers hacked Twitter’s internal system and gained access to the accounts of some celebrities, including Barack Obama, former US president, Elon Musk, the tech billionaire, and Joe Biden, US presidential candidate.
