    Well, you most likely have heard of Twitter hack yesterday were the hackers posted in some top profile verified Twitter accounts asking people to send in $1000 (worth of bitcoin) and get double of that as their way of giving back to the community.

    HOW damaging can that be when Twitter's own official support account was also used to send out this tweet?

    #1 TRUST is BRIDGED
    Many people are gullible when it comes to money doubling or getting quick cash but if the tweets came from non verified accounts, many people will discard it. But coming from trusted accounts, more people losen their guards because of trusting the verified badge but now, that trust has been badly hit.

    #2 Employees Access and Internal control.
    From Twitter's response, it seems like they have to remodel or overhaul their internal control.
    Employees shouldn't have the access to other users accounts.

    #3 IMAGINE IF THIS WAS FROM ANOTHER NON US BASED COMPANY?
    The reaction to this would not end in months....

    This is not a hack. They simply managed via social engineering to get admin access to the system and boom. Can happen any company, security is only as good as the people you secure and control it.
