Did this happen due to SIM card swaps?

Most of SIM card swaps happen in US only. While most exchnages on the list are from USA, CZ, Binance don’t have US numbers and would be impossible to find their number, even if they even have one.

Twitter account of Jeff Bezos also got hacked

So we believe it must be an API / key / 3rd party app. Someone said it could be a support agent with backoffice panel access. If that’s the case this hemorrhage would have been stopped after it started. They would have access logs.

They didn’t even leave Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla out.

Litecoin’s founder, Charlie Lee was also hacked.

The following twitter accounts have been compromised:

@justinsuntron
@Tronfoundation
@Crypto_Bitlord
@Gemini

@CoinDesk
@coinbase

@apple @uber @kanyewest @joebiden

It seems they have lost entire control to their accounts.

This clearly looks like some large scale exploit of Twitter. Hackers are getting access of the Twitter accounts of popular crypto companies.
