Also, the Twitter handles of Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Warren Buffet, Jeff Bezos, and Mike Bloomberg got compromised and posted tweets about donations with Bitcoin.
Twitter support reacted to the same saying they are investigating and taking steps to fix it. Twitter within an hour prevented holders of verified accounts from tweeting and prevented them from tweeting or resetting their password while they review and address the incident.
