Twitter accounts including those of former President Barack Obama, Presidential hopeful Joe Biden, Bill Gates and billionaire Elon Musk and others were hacked in apparent Bitcoin Scam on Wednesday.

The said accounts contained messages about Cryptocurrency(Bitcoin) posted in them.

Twitter has pleaded that it is investigating, after such prominent accounts were apparently hacked.

This is what Twitter said, "We are aware of a security incident impacting accounts on Twitter. We are investigating and taking steps to fix it. We will update everyone shortly."

Someone by username @TheSwedishChef4 stated in a comment that, "Any idiot that thinks Bitcoin is the path to free riches DESERVES to lose their money."

As some Twitter Users made fun of the matter, someone suggested that it should be President Trump responsible for the hacking because he dislikes them.

See others reactions:

With the number of accounts said to be hacked, it is arguably the biggest security incident in Twitter's history.

A hack of this nature could have devastating consequences as some users like President Donald Trump, uses Twitter to announce Major Policy Decisions.
