Measure to the scammers to stop?
Twitter has yet to be made as to why they do it, and for how long, you have no recipient addresses can be published. It’s probably a measure to scammers, but that is a guess.
The only thing in communication is to be found in this Twitterdraadje on account of the Twitter Support. There it says among other things, that the accounts of the various Twittermedewerkers has been compromised. This gave the hackers access to the accounts of the prominent Twiteraars, such as Kanye West, Joe Biden, and Elon Musk.
Internally, we’ve got tasks, significant steps to limit access to internal systems and tools, while our investigation is ongoing. More updates to come as our investigation continues.
