Numerous very prominent Twitter accounts have been hacked under unclear circumstances as the story is just developing.
Bitfinex, the Gemini exchange, the Tron account, Justin Sun, Charlie Lee, the @bitcoin account, Changpen Zhao of Binance, Kucoin, OKEx, Francesco M. (@DrFM85), and many other Twitter accounts were just hacked.
“FYI, we had 2FA enabled for @Gemini. We are currently investigating root cause. Please stay tuned,” Tyler Winklevoss of Gemini said.
They were all hacked to tweet the message pictured above, all saying the same thing a few minutes ago:
“We have partnered with CryptoForHealth and are giving back 5000 BTC to the community.”
That links to a scam site that has the now common ‘send one bitcoin to receive two back’ scam method which has plagued dominant social media platforms for years now since 2018.
