Scammers hacked a number of high-profile politicians, businesspeople and celebrities on Twitter Wednesday. They posted messages on their accounts claiming any users who sent Bitcoin to a link, would receive twice as much of the crypto-currency back. Among those accounts hacked were former President Obama, Joe Biden, Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Kanye West and many others. Twitter was forced to shut down parts of its service to stop the attack.
