Obama, Biden, Musk, Bezos, Etc. Twitter Hack

Today, many big names and corporations had their twitter hacked in a well organized manner promoting a scam in which people would "donate" to a bitcoin wallet.

The scam has amassed over $118,000 in three hours and has attracted the FBI

These accounts have been noted to have strong passwords and 2FA (2 Factor Authentication) on, which means a code would be sent to the accounts listed phone number in order to sign in.

The names include
Barrack Obama
Joe biden
Elon Musk
Bill Gates
Apple
Uber
Cashapp
Kanye West
Kim Kardashian
Floyd Mayweather
Jeff Bezos
And many more

*Update*
Turns out that 3 UK teenagers are responsible for the attack. They gained access to a Twitter employee's backdoor script by either gaining access to their account or sim swapping the employee's phone.

It's misdirection. The bitcoin scam was a distraction. They were after the DMs.
