The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said in a tweet on Sunday morning that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s personal Twitter account had been hacked for some time. However, it has been reported that this has been fixed very soon.
The matter was reported to Twitter. The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO India) later said in a tweet that appropriate action had been taken and the Prime Minister’s personal Twitter account was immediately protected. The Prime Minister’s Twitter account has been asked to ignore the posts posted on it at the time of the hack.
The hashtag #Hacked has become a trend in India after Prime Minister Modi’s Twitter account was hacked. According to screenshots shared on Twitter by several users, tweets were released from Prime Minister Modi’s account that “India has officially accepted Bitcoin as a legal tender”.
“India has officially accepted Bitcoin as a legal tender. The government has officially bought 500 BTC and distributed it to all the citizens of the country,” the hacked account tweeted. However, this tweet has now been deleted.
A similar incident took place in September 2020 on the Twitter account of Prime Minister Modi’s personal website.
In the posts posted when this account was hacked, people were asked to donate to the relief fund through cryptocurrency. It is noteworthy that the news about Bitcoin has been recorded, even though it is currently being hacked.
