Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Apple, Uber, and others see their Twitter accounts hacked

Twitter accounts belonging to Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Apple, Binance, Kanye West, and Uber, among other prominent handles, were compromised on Wednesday and posted tweets that appeared to promote a cryptocurrency scam.

The accounts, along with those of Kanye West and Jeff Bezos, posted similar tweets soliciting donations via Bitcoin to their verified profiles on Wednesday.

“Everyone is asking me to give back, and now is the time,” Gates’ tweet said, promising to double all payments to a Bitcoin address for the next 30 minutes

The bitcoin address have received more than 5 bitcoin worth over $45,000 at the time of posting.

This is a developing story.
