Official Twitter accounts of Apple, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Uber, Kanye West, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, bitcoin speciality firms hacked by Anonymous.

“We are aware of a security incident impacting accounts on Twitter,” Twitter tweeted.

“We are investigating and taking steps to fix it. We will update everyone shortly.”

The Biden campaign told AFP that Twitter locked down the hacked account quickly and removed the bogus tweet.

“Most accounts should be able to Tweet again,” the Twitter support team said in a later update.

“As we continue working on a fix, this functionality may come and go. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible,"

The tweets, which were largely deleted, were tweeted from the array of high-profile accounts telling people they had 30 minutes to send $1,000 in bitcoin in order to be sent back twice as much.

 “This is a SCAM, DO NOT participate!” Gemini cryptocurrency exchange co-founder Cameron Winklevoss warned from his official account on Twitter.

“This is the same attack/takeover that other major crypto twitter accounts are experiencing. Be vigilant!”

Blockchain.com, which monitors transactions made in cryptocurrencies, said a total of 12.58 bitcoins, worth almost $116,000, had been sent to the email addresses mentioned in the fraudulent tweets.

The tweet said, “Happy Wednesday! I am giving back Bitcoin to all of my followers. I am doubling all payments sent to the Bitcoin address below. You send 0.1 BTC, I send 0.2 BTC back!”

It added that the offer was “only going on for 30 minutes.”
