Twitter announced the hack that compromised the accounts of its most high-profile users targeted 130 people, with 45 of those managed to reset passwords by the hackers.
About 8 from those accounts also had their data downloaded through the “Your Twitter Data” tool, though none of them were verified accounts.
“We’re embarrassed, we’re disappointed, and more than anything, we’re sorry. We know that we must work to regain your trust, and we will support all efforts to bring the perpetrators to justice,” Twitter said.
It was on July 17 when hackers invaded Twitter accounts of world leaders, celebrities and other bigshots and post tweets to offering $2,000 for every $1,000 sent to an anonymous Bitcoin address.
