Twitter got Hacked

Major problems at Twitter this morning. At the time I write this all verified accounts have been prevented from tweeting because hackers have, presumably, gained access to internal tooling that allows them to take over accounts at will.

High profile accounts are being used to work a Bitcoin scam – which has netted the hackers about £92k so far.

I am grateful that this was the height of their ambition. Can you imagine what would have happened if Trump had tweeted “Just authorised a tactical nuclear strike on China. #BESTWEAPONS #MAGA!”
