Personal website account of PM Modi hacked

Twitters talks of the hacking of his account

Thursday, 3rd September 2020


Twitter, one of the most popularly used social media platforms, confirmed on this Thursday that PM Modi’s personal website account was hacked! The hackers have asked the followers of the website to make a cryptocurrency donation to a government relief fund through multiple tweets. Twitter further informed that it was tracking the unscrupulous activity and has now taken all the needed steps to safeguard the hacked account. This incident has just followed several such hacking incidents pertaining to the accounts of several such prominent figures in the month of July.

 

"We are actively investigating the situation. At this time, we are not aware of additional accounts being impacted," said a spokesperson of Twitter through an email.

 

Modi Ji’s office failed to respond immediately to the request for commenting on the various tweets that came up on his account @narendramodi_in. The account comes with more than 2.5 million followers and it makes the official handle of Twitter for the personal website (https://www.narendramodi.in/) and the mobile app of PM Narendra Modi ji. Personal account of Twitter belonging exclusively to PM Modi ji, which was not affected by this hacking incident, has more than 61 million followers.

 

Hackers had accessed the internal systems of Twitter this July in order to hijack few of the top voices of the platform including that of Joe Biden (Presidential candidate of the US), Barack Obama (Ex-U.S President), Elon Musk (billionaire) and had made use of the hijacked data in order to solicit the digital currency.
