Bill Gates, Elon Musk and More Targeted in Largest Twitter Hack Ever

Earlier today, a group of people hacked into some of the biggest Twitter accounts—Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Joe Biden, Jeff Bezos, plus nearly a dozen more—and successfully scammed people out of more than $50,000.

The scam told people that if they sent $1,000 in Bitcoin to a wallet they would receive twice the amount back. It's the kind of scam most kids wouldn't fall for on the playground, but sure enough plenty of people did.

In addition to seeing the variety of people getting hacked (Wiz Khalifa? lol), the funniest part about this is that the hackers actually gave some money back to people, making their scam seem that much more convincing.

By the end of the day, a CEO offered $1 million to whoever could bring the hackers to justice. Whether that in itself is just another scam has yet to be seen.
