Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk and Microsoft’s founder, Bill Gates Twitter accounts appear to have been hacked in an elaborate cryptocurrency scam.

The tweet gave the impression that the tech billionaires would give back Bitcoin to their followers if they sent payments to a certain Bitcoin address for only 30 minutes.

Currently, Elon Musk’s Twitter account has a message from the hackers but in the case for Bill Gates, he has managed to secure his account and delete the scam tweet.


Targeting such influential tech figures is an elaborate way for such scammers to con people out of their hard earned money due to Elon and Bill Gates’ clout.

This is not the first time we have seen celebrity accounts getting hacked or Bitcoin being used for elaborate scams. This has never stopped hackers from trying to guess the login credentials for influential figures and they have been successful multiple times in the past.


**UPDATE**

It now includes Apple’s main Twitter account which is usually dormant and Uber’s main Twitter account.
