Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Twitter account secured, hackers captured

The Twitter handle of Prime Minister Narendra Modi was briefly hacked on Sunday. The hackers claimed in a tweet that India had “granted bitcoin the status of a legal currency.” The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) later said that Prime Minister Modi’s account was immediately secured after the matter was taken to Twitter. The PMO said that any tweet shared while the account was hacked should be ignored.

After hackers hacked the personal Twitter handle of Prime Minister Modi, it was also claimed that India has officially bought 500 Bitcoins and these are being distributed among the residents of the country. A link was also given in this tweet to take bitcoin and people were asked to visit the link quickly. After seeing this, many users had informed about Prime Minister Modi’s Twitter account being hacked. However, some people like Youth Congress President BV Srinivas took a jibe at this and posted a screenshot of the now deleted tweet, tweeting, “Good morning Modi ji, sab changa si?”

This is not the first time that the Twitter handle of the Prime Minister has been hacked. In September last year the Twitter handle of his personal website was hacked and even then tweets promoting Bitcoin were posted from @narendramodi_in. Were. Hackers haven’t just targeted Prime Minister Modi’s Twitter accounts to promote the world’s largest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. Twitter handles of many other celebrities have been hacked and such messages have been sent. These include former US President Barack Obama, Microsoft founder Bill Gates and some famous people from the entertainment world.

India has been tightening its stance on cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin. Prime Minister Modi has been highlighting the risks associated with crypto.

The government is also preparing to make a law related to cryptocurrencies.
