Hackers attack Twitter handle of Indian PM Narendra Modi

Hackers have attacked the personal Twitter handle of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said in a tweet early on Sunday.
Twitter developersNarendra Modi has over 73 million followers.

PMO escalated the matter to Twitter and the Prime Minister’s personal twitter handle @narendramodi was immediately secured, PMO India’s tweet said. PMO said any tweet shared during the brief period when the account was compromised must be ignored.

It was not immediately known how long the personal Twitter handle of Modi was compromised.

Twitter took the steps to secure the compromised account as soon as it became aware of the activity, a Twitter spokesperson said in an emailed statement to Reuters, adding an investigation revealed no signs of any other impacted accounts at present.

A similar incident had occurred with the Twitter handle of Modi’s personal website @narendramodi_in in September 2020, with a series of tweets asking followers to donate to a relief fund through cryptocurrency.
