The British military regained control of their Twitter and YouTube accounts on Sunday after they were briefly hacked and posted about cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens.

“Sorry for the temporary interruption in our feed. We will do a full investigation and learn from this incident,” said a post on the @BritishArmy Twitter handle. Earlier, the account had retweeted several posts about NFTs.

Senna’s YouTube account, which was renamed ‘Ark Invest’ and featured several cryptocurrency-related videos, was also restored to its original state.

Its Twitter feed currently has 362,000 followers, while the YouTube channel has 177,000 subscribers.

Ark Invest is the name of a global investment firm. The company did not immediately respond to requests for comment submitted via email and the company’s website.
