At least a dozen Twitter accounts belonging to major public figures were hacked by scamsters executing a cryptocurrency fraud scheme. A tweet appeared on the timelines of prominent individuals such as Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Joe Biden and Barack Obama urging their followers to send cryptocurrency to a Bitcoin wallet, promising that the funds would be returned in double.

The widespread nature of the recurring scam solicitations makes it likely that hackers discovered a weakness in Twitter’s internal security protocols, enabling them to take control of the accounts of some of the platform’s largest users.

Unfortunately, some Twitter users fell for the dubious scam, with blockchain records indicating that the scam cryptocurrency wallet was sent at least eleven entire bitcoins. One bitcoin is worth around $9,000.

As Twitter struggled to prevent the scamsters from taking control of any more large celebrity accounts and scamming more people, the platform temporarily suspended all tweets from verified users on Wednesday afternoon. Verified accounts were then unlocked, only to be locked again as the scamsters attempted a second round of scam messages.

Twitter security acknowledged the wide-ranging scam on Wednesday afternoon, confirming that they were disabling the tweeting ability of some accounts to prevent the scam messages.

Shares of Twitter fell 3% on the stock market in the wake of the security breach.

LEAKED VIDEO Shows Twitter Exec Laying Out Global Censorship Plan to Crush Right-Wing Dissent

Big Tech is evil.

Published

Twitter Senior Executive Vijaya Gadde’s plan for global Big Brother censorship against conservatives has been exposed in a leaked video released by Project Veritas. 

Journalist James O’Keefe debuted the video on Monday amidst an alleged revolt of sorts behind the scenes of Twitter, with many of the corporation’s employees disgusted by Twitter’s Orwellian aims following the Jan. 6 Capitol siege by Trump supporters. This is part two of O’Keefe’s #ExposeTwitter campaign.

The Civic Integrity policy in particular has a range of options from labeling to removal in some instances to permanent suspension,” Gadde said in the video.

But whether we believe Trump’s tweets are inciting violence and having real world harm, I think we’ve seen that in fact, they are,” she added.

Even though they cannot point to any specific Tweet issued by Trump that sparked violence, Twitter maintains that they will take a more active role anyway in censoring individuals and crushing political movements moving forward.

One of the interesting things is a lot of the work we’ve been doing over the last week is work that we’ve built on in other places around the world where we’ve seen violence unfold as a result of either misleading information or coded rhetoric,” Gadde said about her platform’s global censorship campaign.

So, in that sense, you know, we do feel like it is – this is our global approach,” she confirmed.

The whole video can be seen here:

Big League Politics has reported on Twitter’s censorship of O’Keefe and Veritas in the past in an attempt to choke off his ability to expose corruption on the platform:

Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe revealed today that his organization was suspended from Twitter for tweets revealing Pinterest’s mass censorship of conservative websites and individuals on its platform.

On June 11, O’Keefe interviewed a whistle blower at Pinterest who revealed that the platform adds conservative news websites, including Big League Politics, to a list of “porn” websites in an attempt to prevent our links from being posted to the platform, and that employees at Pinterest consider Ben Shapiro, a Jewish conservative commentator, to be an anti-Muslim “white supremacist.” Project Veritas was suspended from Twitter for posting screen shots from the company’s Slack chat illustrating this.

“Twitter has decided that investigative journalism is a violation of their terms of service,” wrote O’Keefe on his personal Twitter account. “@Project_Veritas has been temporarily suspended from posting for tweeting internal communications from @Pinterest which show them calling @benshapiro a ‘white supremacist.’”

It would appear Twitter is doing its best to protect their fellow big tech platform in this latest move. Unfortunately, Big League Politics and others have already reported on the Pinterest employees calling Shapiro a “white supremacist”.

Twitter is turning into one of the most villainous multinational corporations in world history, and they are enabled by the government-granted monopoly powers of Section 230.
