New Delhi: Prime Minister’s personal website which goes by the handle name narendramodi_in. and mobile app was hacked this early morning, confirmed social media giant Twitter.
“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,” a Twitter spokesperson said in a statement.
Similar incident was reported in the month of July when several Twitter accounts of prominent personalities were hacked.
PM Modi’s personal Twitter account, which was unaffected by this incident, has over 61 million followers.
Hackers had in July accessed Twitter’s internal systems to hijack some of the platform’s top voices including US presidential candidate Joe Biden, former US President Barack Obama and billionaire Elon Musk, and used them to solicit digital currency.
