PM Modi’s Twitter Handle ‘Briefly Compromised’

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s personal Twitter account was “briefly compromised”, his office posted on the social networking site early Sunday morning, after it shared a scam link on bitcoin.

“The Twitter handle of PM @narendramodi was very briefly compromised. The matter was escalated to Twitter and the account has been immediately secured. In the brief period that the account was compromised, any Tweet shared must be ignored,” PMO India tweeted.

The account has now been restored and the malicious tweets have been deleted.
