Impressive hack. Funny, creative, good enough to scam the bottom feeders and Twitter takes a strong ribbing.

Today the owner of binance and another crypto exchange started sending out some scam tweets. I'm assuming that there's some new vulnerability in the wild affecting twitter.

Why would anyone give any of these billionaires their rent money even if it were real? I really try not to hate humanity, but sometimes it's hard.

On the other hand, the person who did this sure has some balls, you know if they get caught the book's going to be thrown so #ing hard at him. They're going to make an example outta that one...or give em a job at the cia/NSA...either or...

Highly doubt whomever did it is in the US. Hacks like these usually come from a spoofed IP from a country that the US has no jurisdiction in.

While they may find the person/people responsible, doubt they can do much.

Wonder how much they made before it got shut down.

I really want to feel sympathy for those effected by this hack.

On the other hand part of me just shrugs and thinks "Anyone naive and greedy enough to fall for that nonsense maybe learned an expensive lesson?"

Now if you'll excuse me I've got some incredibly important business to do with this Nigerian Prince who I have an arrangement with.

I disagree with many in this thread. This is a big effing deal. All those who are dismissing this as insignificant, and having a belly laugh about it...
"Sumting rong wit da twitterz, erybuddy runfuh de hilz!" Consider this: Not only was Twitter hacked, but their Two-Factor Authentication system (which is a very reliable form of security) was compromised, short-circuited, or otherwise negated. the company itself- from low level techs all the way up to CEO Jack Douchey- were also locked out, and unable to gain control of the compromised accounts (apparently until later on, when every blue check was reactivated). I mean, the Twitter account of BARACK F'ing OBAMA was sending out half-assed scam messages to send him bitcoin, and he would send you back double. BARACK OBAMA. That's not the same as Lil' Wayne or Paris Hilton's dog having their account hacked, friends.
A thought experiment: What if the people behind the hack of former Pres Barry's account, instead of tweeting the cheesy bitcoin grab, had sent this out:

------

(( DISCLAIMER: THIS IS A PURELY HYPOTHETICAL SITUATION, WITH NO BASIS IN REALITY. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO TRUTH AT ALL TO WHAT FOLLOWS. ))

"I call all lovers of modern America and all haters of racism TO IMMEDIATE ACTION!
My daughters were just viciously attacked by two white country boys wearing MAGA hats. They are in intensive care, and are not expected to survive.
THIS IS IT
The war we've been expecting starts THIS MOMENT.
Every white man, woman and child is our enemy.
Every police officer is our enemy.
Every member of the military is our enemy.
Kill all of our enemies, and let justice be done.

(( THE PRECEDING WORDS WERE A THOUGHT EXERCISE, A PURELY HYPOTHETICAL SITUATION, WITH NO BASIS IN REALITY. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO TRUTH AT ALL TO ANY OF IT. ))

------

A little over the top, I know. Maybe a lot over the top.
But brothers and sisters, it could happen. Today's events proved it. And it seems more like a trial run, a proof-of-concept to me... coming so soon after Trump's EO regarding Hong Kong, China, and those with US$ invested in companies like TikTok.

The magnitude of this event may be vastly more dangerous than we yet know.

Timcast IRL is all over it, rewind the live stream to the very beginning, they delve into the nuts and bolts of it.



CRAZY times, friends... crazy.

Maybe retaliation for Hushpuppi being arrested by U.S. authorities.
