How PM Modi’s Twitter handle was hacked, tweeted about bitcoin, was restored; how Twitter responded
Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Twitter handle was ‘very briefly compromised’ and was secured later. A link promising a bitcoin giveaway was shared on the account, Prime Minister's Office said. PMO tweeted, ‘The matter was escalated to Twitter and the account has been immediately secured’. PM Modi’s account, which has over 73.4 million followers, has now been restored and malicious tweets have been deleted. Twitter India issued a statement saying ‘necessary steps’ were taken to secure the account. The malicious tweet claimed, ‘India has officially adopted bitcoin as legal tender’.
Imagine hacker would have wrote, "From tomorrow there would be no Pakistan, we have bought the whole Pakistan via crypto"
Wont be surprised if hacked by twitter itself.
O T T O M A N
Imagine if the hacker wrote that India has started war with China and Pakistan.
Shouldn't have messed with Modiji !! Badi galti !! Whatever little hope Bïtcoin had from the crypto bill is now as good as gone
Modiji: Bolo Pencil
Modiji: Tumhare bitcoin cancel
I think Blockchain is solution to cyber security problem. If properly implemented Blockchain could solve this problem even at a core level.
If the PM and his team cannot protect his/her Twitter account then imagine what all things of national security will be at risk.
Bad timing for bitcoin lovers
If #Tweeter is not so much secure. It can start #WorldWar amongCountry
I assume there are many in this comment section itself whos account was sometime hacked and somefool was streaming about "Give Me Bitcoin"
Dark web Traders also realised they are in loss after banning in India
Crypto is basically e-black money
When you dream about digital India but your account is not safe digitally
PM Modi's account got Modi-fied. Anyways, what are the cyber security team doing for letting things like this happen?
Useless govt. PM don’t want to leave Twitter
High time for Prime ministers, presidents to leave Twitter and stop using it to make any official statements.
