Twitter Hack Snags Apple, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Kanye West Accounts

Several Twitter accounts belonging to high profile individuals were compromised on Wednesday in a cryptocurrency scam. The accounts included those of corporate giants Apple Inc. and Uber Technologies Inc., celebrities Elon Musk, Michael Bloomberg, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, and American politicians Barrack Obama and Joe Biden. Bogus tweets were sent out through these accounts promising to double the funds sent to Bitcoin address indicated within 30 minutes. It is estimated at least 12 bitcoins, worth around $110,000 were collected by the hackers.

In a statement via Twitter Support, the microblogging platform acknowledged the Bitcoin-related crime putting in measures to “have locked accounts that were compromised” temporarily. “We also limited functionality for a much larger group of accounts, like all verified accounts (even those with no evidence of being compromised), while we continue to fully investigate this”, added Twitter. It is believed that the hackers may have targeted one of the company’s employees with access to internal logins.

Is Dakota Johnson Bisexual?

Tweeps went into a frenzy on whether Dakota Johnson was bisexual following her now viral 2017 interview with Vogue magazine. The “Fifty Shades of Grey” star’s sexuality came into play when the interview seemingly intimated her “confirmation” to being bisexual.

A Twitter user posted a screenshot where the actress was allegedly exploring her sexuality: “I’ve been in a phase of my life where I’m fascinated by young women coming to terms with their sexuality. I guess, by proxy, I have been experiencing that in my own life, and it’s very interesting to me.” Well, for what its worth, the internet could not have been more welcoming, whether or not the veracity of the interview was far-fetched.
