Update: Every verified account with blue checkmarks have been locked by Twitter.

Update I: Apparently, the Twitter account of a high ranking Twitter staffer was sold on the black market. That account - which has user access to every Twitter account - was compromised by hackers on Wednesday.

Update II: A message on the dark web reads:

"Don't purchase any Twitters for the time being, the internal employee panel was hacked and someone has access to any Twitter they want. You will also see lots of scams, don't fall for them."

 

Original post:

Hackers targeted the Twitter accounts of high-profile politicians and tech billionaires in a coordinated bitcoin scam.

The hackers hit the Twitter accounts of former President Barack Obama and former VP Joe Biden on Wednesday. President Trump's Twitter account wasn't hacked.

Also targeted were tech billionaires including Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Microsoft founder Bill Gates and Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

The hackers somehow gained access to the high profile accounts and offered to send Twitter users $2,000 for every $1,000 sent to a bitcoin address.

The tweets read: "I am giving back to my community due to Covid-19! All Bitcoin sent to my address below will be sent back doubled. If you send $1,000 I will send back $2,000. Only doing this for the next 20 minutes. Enjoy!"

The fake tweets were sent simultaneously on the hacked Twitter accounts of America's wealthiest men and high-profile politicians.

Biden's staff locked down his Twitter account almost immediately and the tweets were swiftly deleted, but not before hackers collected over $110,000 in bitcoin currency.

Twitter released a statement noting it was aware of the highly embarrassing security breaches on their platform and they are working to figure out how the hackers compromised the accounts.

Update: Kanye West's Twitter account was also hacked.

Cardi is beside herself after her rapper husband Offset's socials were apparently hacked early Tuesday. Someone close to the rapper sent out a series of tweets on his timeline that suggested he was batting for the other team.

The hacker then changed his password and locked him out of his accounts.

The tweets were quickly deleted but not before Offset's followers took screenshots of the posts.

Cardi B addressed the tweets as soon as she woke up this morning. She assured her fans that her man's socials were hacked.

Her assistant was unable to get access to Offset's Instagram account. As Cardi spoke on camera, a nervous-looking Offset shadowed her every move.

The fact that both of his accounts were hacked at the same is very suspect. It can only mean one thing: that someone very very close to him knew his password (he probably uses the same password for all of his accounts) and hacked into his accounts.

It isn't hard to figure out who did it (no, it wasn't Cardi or her assistant). It was someone very close to him. Cardi knows who it is. That's why she keeps him so close.

Tyga Blac Chyna split

As some of you know, washed up rapper Tyga allegedly hacked his baby mama Blac Chyna's Twitter.com social media account over the weekend. I am not here for any of this childish nonsense. But I recognize that some of you get your life from this silliness. So have at it.

Many thanks to blogger Cottenkandi.com for taking the time out of her busy schedule to piece all of this pettiness together -- and make sense out of it for those of us who can't be bothered with social media shenanigans.

Marcus Jordan

Michael Jordan's son, Marcus Jordan, is blaming a hacker for accidentally tweeting a pic of his penis on Saturday. Marcus, who is rumored to be gay, tweeted a pic of his genitals at 10:41 p.m., according to Deadspin.com. The 22-year-old quickly deleted the tweet and followed up with another tweet that read "#mistake my bad."

"Anyway, what's poppin Twitter," Marcus tweeted early Sunday.

When his Twitter followers teased Marcus about his, shall we say, shortcomings he queened out.

"My homies hitting me up talking about some pic that was posted from my account.. I mean really? Y'all think I don't know how to work this?" he tweeted.
