Twitter Says Hackers Downloaded Data of 8 Accounts in Cyberattack This Week

Twitter disclosed earlier today that hackers were able to download account information of eight accounts using the company’s “Your Twitter Data” tool. This tool provides an archive of an account’s Twitter data, including tweets and direct messages. While Twitter didn’t reveal the identity of these accounts, the company did say that none of the eight was a verified account. The company also announced that for 45 accounts, the hackers were able to initiate a password reset and send tweets.

Twitter’s latest revelations come a day after it had disclosed that the hackers targeted about 130 accounts during the cyberattack this week, an incident in which profiles of many prominent personalities and organizations were compromised. The company also said that it was reaching out to the eight Twitter users whose data was downloaded by the hackers.

“We are continuing our forensic review of all of the accounts to confirm all actions that may have been taken,” Twitter said. “Also, we believe they may have attempted to sell some of the usernames.”

Hackers had accessed Twitter’s internal systems to hijack some of the platform’s top voices including US presidential candidate Joe Biden, reality TV star Kim Kardashian, former US President Barack Obama, and billionaire Elon Musk and used them to solicit digital currency.
