Twitter account of PM Narendra Modi’s personal website hacked

Twitter has confirmed that the personal website and mobile app of Prime Minister Modi’s Twitter account was hacked early on Thursday morning. Twitter addressed the situation by stating that it was aware of the activity and has taken steps to secure it.

The account was hacked with a series of tweets asking his followers to donate to a relief fund through cryptocurrency. However Modi’s office did not immediately respond for comment on the tweets posted on the account.

A twitter spokesman said “we are aware of this activity and have taken steps to secure the compromised account. We are actively investigating the situation. At this time we are not aware of additional accounts being impacted.”

The account narendramodi_in has 2.5 million followers and 37,000 tweets since it was created.  His personal twitter account, which has over 61 million followers was unaffected by this incident.

The incident comes after several twitter accounts of prominent personalities like US presidential candidate Joe Biden, former US president Barack Obama and tech Billionaire Elon Musk were hacked in the month of July.
