Twitter accounts belonging to Joe Biden, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Kanye West and more were hacked. The account were seen to have posted tweets that appeared to have promote a crypto currency scam and all accounts tweeted the same Bitcoin address to promote a crypto currency scam.

It was allegedly reported that the hackers simultaneously gained access to those high profile accounts without the need for password. As at the time of writing this article the hackers have made away with about $113k and more are still counting. The money equivalent in Nigerian naira is about #42.6M. Twitter has already confirmed the hackers and has lost 4% in stock value merely four hours after. Currently twitter has sent out a message saying that it aware of the hack and is fixing it.

However this hack seems to be an evolution of a long-running scam that has persisted on social media. As before previous crypto currency scams mimicked accounts of prominent people into order to lure them into seeding money, bitcoin, crypto currency with the promise that they'll have it doubled or tripled in return but this scam was different as the hackers were able to get access to the real accounts of these people, and a lot of people fell for this scam.
