According to Hindustan Times, Twitter account @narendramodi_in, linked to the personal website of Prime Minister Narendra Modi was recently taken over by hackers.

Confirming this, a spokesperson from Twitter in an email said to Hindustan Times, “We’re aware of this activity and have taken steps to secure the compromised account. We are actively investigating the situation. At this time, we are not aware of additional accounts being impacted.”

Multiple random tweets from the said account were also allegedly posted by the miscreant this morning asking people to donate cryptocurrency, reported ABP News.

One of the tweets also claimed that the account has been hacked by John Wick.

A report by The Hindu indicated that a cybersecurity firm had said that a hacker group that goes by the name ‘John Wick’ had also breached the security system of Paytm Mall.

After reports of the hacking came into light, people, especially PUBG lovers, took to Twitter and posted hilarious memes venting out their frustration after the Ministry of Information & Technology blocked 118 mobile apps including the gaming app yesterday.

Take a look:

Even though the hackers were successful in taking over the Twitter account of PM Modi’s personal website, it was soon restored and the bogus tweets have been taken down.

Well, it’s time social media platforms put an indestructible security wall to protect the privacy of the users.
