Decrypt’s Art, Fashion, and Entertainment Hub.
Seems verified accounts are currently blocked from tweeting.

You know what the real news is from this incident?
Someone appears to have root level access to Twitter. They OWN this platform. They are in GOD MODE. They can do ANYTHING they want on it.
And their top choice is to trick you into parting with your precious bitcoin.

Bitcoin-related accounts are affected
It seems like some Twitter API posting service has been compromised and being used to send out fake "giveaway" tweets from popular crypto/blockchain accounts. "CryptoForHealth" is a scam.
No way are all these accounts unprotected by strong passwords and TOTP 2FA
