This just in. Multiple crypto-twitter accounts have been hacked and posting fake giveaways. Be careful Uptrennd as this is obviously an attempt to scam crypto enthusiasts. These giveaways are fake.
CZ Binance Hacked Twitter
Stay safe and don't fall for any traps. The above tweet is not from CZ but it is a scam attempt. Don't even follow the link as you might get infected with malware.
[EDIT] More accounts have been hacked:
Warn others about this if possible. It is major hack and many will fall for this.
It seems that Twitter action was brisk and hopefully damage was limited. Still too many accounts suffered similar hack at the same time. This invalidates SMS hack or SIM Swap. The hack probably happened on Twitter. This is a major problem of centralized networks. You can't hack Bitcoin.
Crypto news reported that accounts of Elon Musk and Bill Gates were also targeted. The matter might be over for now but certainly there will be a lot of discussion about how safe Twitter actually is.
