Kanye West, Elon Musk, Bill Gates, and others hacked for a Bitcoin scam

Come on! Would any of these guys need more money?

Elon Musk, Kanye West, Bill Gates, Joe Biden, and many other great personalities were victims of a cyber attack on their Twitter accounts.

On Wednesday (July 15), the massive attack started with Elon Musk’s Twitter account tweeting a message to send bitcoin to a particular address with the promise that he would return it with double.

Soon West, along with his friend Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Barack Obama, Ye’s wife Kim Kardashian, Joe Biden and more, sent a similar message, as well as official Uber accounts, CashApp and Apple.

Twitter acted quickly and sent a message to let users know they were working on it, but at the same time issued a ban on tweeting all verified accounts when fixing the problem. “We are aware of a security incident affecting Twitter accounts,” the company wrote in a tweet.

“We are investigating and taking steps to fix it. We will update everyone shortly. You may not be able to tweet or reset your password as we review and address this incident.”
