Massive Twitter Hack Hits Barack Obama, Elon Musk and More as Verified Accounts Frozen

Twitter temporarily blocked verified users from posting messages after accounts of world leading figures were hijacked by bitcoin hackers on Wednesday night.

Shortly after the spike of takeovers, Twitter itself tweeted that users may be unable to reset their passwords or tweet while the company addresses the issue.

Within an hour of the breach, Republican Sen. Josh Hawley wrote a letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey asking for more information about the hack, including how the hack occurred, how many users were compromised, and whether the hack affected President Trump’s account. Hawley said “please reach out immediately to the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation and take any necessary measures to secure the site before this breach expands.”
