The tweet handle #twitterhacked began yesterday GMT+1 time as many Billionaires Accounts was hacked. It wasn’t noticed at first as the hacker used a giveaway scheme. It happens that the hacker posted Different write-ups on this billionaires Twitter account claiming to run a money doubler for followers, which I believe that people that falls victim didn’t think twice because it was coming from the official Twitter handle of the various Billionaires.
At this point, a lot of people quickly send series of bitcoin to the given wallet because it was tagged to last only 30 minutes According to the post made by the hacker on this Billionaires Accounts. Later do people come to realize that the same bitcoin wallet address is being used in different Billionaires Twitter Accounts and claims to run doubler giveaway of whatever you send to the Btc wallet within 30 minutes.
On of the great strategy being played by the hacker was making Different write-ups, and for a fact, most of the victims aren’t following at least two of the hacked billionaires Account on twitter. For example, if like the Twitter scam victim is following the person’s of Bill Gate and Elon Musk, the victim would have doubt the Money Doubler Giveaway scheme because of both posts have the same Wallet.
Many closed down there Wallets, others sent their life savings, and one of the victims lamented on sending out his tuition fee and ended up not getting a penny back as promised on the twitter post.
As of yesterday night, it was recorded to have about 5,314 Transaction to the hacker bitcoin wallet address which was about $8 million worth of bitcoin in less than 30 minutes. Knowing very well that Cryptocurrency is not traceable, who are we to blame? Is it twitter security, The cryptocurrency Founder via Satoshi Nakamoto, or the Longthroat of the Followers?
