The messages all entice Bitcoin owners with a false offer to double their amounts. They post an address to send over their cryptocurrency, and of course, many people have apparently done just that.

Other Twitter accounts that were hacked include Cash App and Ripple — the latter of which asks users to send money “to our Covid-19 Fund.”

Since this post first went live, we have seen more Twitter accounts hacked, including the pages of Kanye West, Joe Biden, Mike Bloomberg, and Jeff Bezos.

There’s no word on who might be hacking into these accounts. CNBC got in touch with Twitter, which claims it is looking into the issue. Later, the official Twitter support page posted word that it is  “investigating and taking steps to fix it.” Also, it appears that some owners of verified accounts cannot tweet at the moment.

In the meantime, if your favorite Twitter account starts to posts these kinds of posts, its best to report it to the company. Also, do not click on any of the links provided in these tweets.
