High-Profile Twitter Accounts Hacked in Bitcoin Scam

Published

on

Several well-known billionaire’s official Twitter account recently was targeted by hackers in a Bitcoin scam. Billionaires that were targeted such as Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Joe Biden, and former US president, Barack Obama.

Big company’s Twitter account like Uber and Apple was also targeted by hackers. “Everyone is asking me to give back, and now is the time. You send $1,000, I send you back $2,000.” a tweet from Bill Gates account said. But minutes after it was posted, the tweet was deleted.

As a result, Twitter has to take a big step by stopping many verified accounts marked with blue ticks from tweeting altogether. It is believed that Twitter is still fixing the problem but most of the accounts should be able to tweet again.

A spokesman of Bill Gates said that the problem is part of a larger issue that Twitter is facing.

As reported by BBC, the fact that so many different users have been compromised at the same time implies that this is a problem with Twitter’s platform itself.

The hackers could have done the worst damage with more sophisticated tweets that might harm the reputation of people or organizations.

But the motive of the current problem seems to be clear, that is making as much money as they can. The hackers know that the tweets would not stay up for long. So, it can be said that it was a “smash and grab” operation.

It is important to know that the hackers can add their funds into their Bitcoin wallets to make the scam seem more legitimate.

It can be said that it will be very hard to catch hackers by following the money. Twitter will be facing many questions by law enforcement and users regarding how this problem could have happened.

Mothers-Teachers Collaboration Makes PdPR A Success

Published

on

KINABATANGAN, June 25  — The implementation of home-based teaching and learning (PdPR) requires full commitment from teachers and students, but the role of parents is also important in ensuring its effectiveness.

Teachers at a school in the interior of Sabah are aware of mothers’ influence in the success of PdPR, especially in areas where it is difficult to conduct online learning.

A teacher, Najme Nasir, said mothers of pupils of Sekolah Kebangsaan (SK) Sungai Lokan, had given a strong commitment to making PdPR a success since last year.

“The one who gives a lot of cooperation is the mother at home, the one who helps the students a lot is the mother, the one who keeps nagging kids about their homework is the mother.

“For that, we really appreciate the role of mothers in helping their children and also helping us teachers implement PdPR,” he told Bernama when contacted.

Najme said the commitment of the mothers made it easier for teachers to monitor the progress of students at home as some areas in Kampung Sungai Lokan did not have good internet access due to the hilly terrain.

The school’s teachers and headmaster, Masnah Apong, always looking for ideas to encourage students to be interested in learning, he said.

Among them is using their own money to buy school supplies, wrapped them before delivering them to 62 school children at their homes.

“There is no denying that the performance of students in the interior is different from that in the city, let alone when PdPR was launched following the pandemic.

“For us, we want the students here not to be left behind in their studies,” he said.
