According to the company, most accounts should be able to Tweet again. As we continue working on a fix, this functionality may come and go. We're working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.

By Wednesday evening, people had sent approximately $118,000 worth of Bitcoin to that wallet. The entire situation is really bad and Twitter will have eventually some serious questions to answer about its security practices. But it could have been so much worse.

The New York Times reported that US intelligence agencies believe the attack was conducted by an individual, rather than a state. Reports from Motherboard and TechCrunch back up that assertion.
Twitter said Wednesday that a "coordinated social engineering attack" was behind a hack that compromised high-profile accounts. The attack "successfully targeted some of our employees," the company said, giving hackers access to "internal systems and tools."
