Protoday247 News: The social networking site reported the Twitter account of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s personal website has been compromised. Twitter said it was aware of Modi’s website account operation, and took steps to protect it.
“We are taking a careful look at the situation. We are not aware of any new accounts being compromised at this time, “said a Twitter spokesperson in an emailed statement. Modi’s office did not respond to an urgent request for comment on the tweets shared on the @narendramodi in website.
The account is the official Twitter handle for Modi’s personal website (www.narendramodi.in/) and Narendra Modi’s smartphone phone, with over 2.5 million followers. Modi’s official Twitter account has more than 61 million subscribers, which was untouched by this incident.
The tweets, which have since been taken down, were requesting the followers to contribute by cryptocurrencies to the PM National Relief Fund. In July, Hackers had breached the internal networks of Twitter to hijack some of the highest voices on the site, including US presidential candidate Joe Biden, former US President Barack Obama and billionaire Elon Musk, and used them to collect digital currencies.
