British military’s Twitter and YouTube accounts briefly hacked for crypto scam


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.
