Twitter Has Biggest Security Breach in History - All Accounts May be Compromised

(1/3) > >>

Details are still scarce.  But apparently all Twitter accounts have been compromised.  Postings were made on accounts of prominant figures despite them being protected by strong passwords and encrypted connections.

Speculation is that Chinese communist government activated inside assets to breach Twitter to send message to U.S tech leaders, politicians, and celebrities. Guise of cyber scam was used for plausible deniability and to give China a PR talking point.   Attack comes on heels of US challenges to China on Hong Kong, South Sea, 5G networks, and coronavirus origin.

Twitter stock is plummeting.   May be a good time to consider deleting your Twitter account and moving to an uncompromised option like Parler.

Stay tuned, this is going to be an interesting ride.

They've gotten away with over $125k worth of bitcoin so far.

Tech experts are saying they were able to change email addresses and passwords and access private messages. For most people, this means they also have the email address, phone number, and other personal info.

They are recommending that if your account hasnt been used yet, you should at least change password.  Better yet is to deactivate account.  You will still have 30 days to reactivate it.

Uh oh.  Images of Twitter's internal administration board have been leaked.  It verifies that trend blacklisting/shadow banning are real despite Twitter's testimony to Congress.  Twitter is suspending all accounts which post the images.

Good advice here.
