Twitter says attackers accessed inbox of 36 accounts in widespread hack

A week after hackers hijacked the Twitter accounts of high-profile users including former US President Barack Obama and Microsoft founder Bill Gates, the social media company revealed Wednesday that attackers managed to gain access to the direct messages of 36 of those accounts.

The social media company also said the Twitter inbox of one elected official in the Netherlands had been accessed, but that there was “no indication that any other former or current elected official had their DMs accessed.” It’s unclear whether the attackers were able to compose and send messages to other users, in addition to being able to view direct messages.
