WCCO AM 830 with Cory Hepola, Thursday, July 16, 2020; Twitter Attack

Somebody attacked Twitter yesterday and hijacked several celebrities’ accounts. Tweets went out asking the public to deposit a small amount into a bitcoin wallet in return for lots of money back.

And people fell for it. Apparently, the attackers stole around $120,000. Who says crime doesn’t pay?

More importantly, whodunit? And how? These early articles from The Verge and Motherboard are the best info we have to date. Stay tuned.

Thanks to @breaking911 on Twitter for grabbing this screenshot with the offending messages.
