130 Twitter Accounts Were Hacked

This week, a bunch of Twitter accounts from high-profile celebrities, politicians and other personalities were hacked. Kim Kardashian, Wiz Khalifa, Kanye West, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Barack Obama and Joe Biden were just some of the targets. And according to reports, this was all part of a cryptocurrency scam.

In statement from the company, they said that the attackers “manipulated a small number of employees and used their credentials to access Twitter’s internal systems.” They were able to go past the two-factor authentication security measures, and a total of 130 accounts were hacked. And out of that number, 45 had their passwords reset, and eight had also had their information — their account details and activities — downloaded.

Twitter did not specify which eight accounts had their info stolen, but said that none of them were verified accounts. The company added, “We are continuing our forensic review of all of the accounts to confirm all actions that may have been taken. In addition, we believe they may have attempted to sell some of the usernames.” The attackers were also able to see some people’s email addresses, phone numbers and other “additional information.”

The company is now working with authorities to investigate and get to the bottom of the breach. They’re also looking to make long-term solutions so that the incident won’t be repeated. “We have multiple teams working around the clock focused on this and on keeping the people who use Twitter safe and informed,” the company said.

“We’re embarrassed, we’re disappointed, and more than anything, we’re sorry. We know that we must work to regain your trust, and we will support all efforts to bring the perpetrators to justice.” They ended their post, saying, “We hope that our openness and transparency throughout this process, and the steps and work we will take to safeguard against other attacks in the future, will be the start of making this right.”

Jeff Bezos on Track to Become World’s First Trillionaire

Yup, you read that right. Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos, is projected to become the world’s first ever trillionaire by 2026 according to a new study by Comparisun.

Looking at the growth of Bezos’ net worth over the past five years, the projection predicts that the world’s richest man will like surpass the trillion dollar mark some time in the next six years. According to Bloomberg’s Billionaire Index, Bezos’ wealth has grown by $28 billion in the past year alone with an estimated overall net worth of $143 billion which doesn’t even take into account Amazon’s recent spike in revenue under the global pandemic.

The online retailer has understandably seen a dramatic increase in demand as much of the country continues to self-isolate, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that those profits have translated into better conditions for workers. Warehouse employees have reported that the company is still failing to adequately provide a safe work environment and protect its workers from exposure to the coronavirus. One warehouse worker has already died because of COVID-19 and the company’s vice president, Tim Bray, has just announced his departure in solidarity with a round of recently fired executives who sounded the alarm about poor working conditions. On top of all that, Amazon recently announced that they would also be ending hazard pay at the end of May.

So it shouldn’t be a big surprise that most people were markedly less than thrilled about the news. The hashtag #RIPCapitalism even started trending on Twitter as many voiced their disgust at exorbitant level of Bezos’ wealth in the face of an impending economic depression.







Anyways, eat the rich.

Post Malone – On the Road Lyrics

Play this song

[Intro: Post Malone]
Mm, mm, mm
Mm

[Chorus: Post Malone]
‘Cause they ain’t ever seein’ me fold under pressure
They ain’t never, ever seen me fold, nah, never
Always keep one up on ’em ’cause I’m too clever
I would never, ever sell my soul, nah, never
‘Cause I been on the road, been on the road, I
Quit actin’ like you been with me this whole time
‘Cause I been on the road, been on the road, I
Quit actin’ like you been with me this whole time

[Verse 1: Post Malone]
Yeah, they bet I’ma fall
And I’m only 24, but, bitch, I been through it all
I got so many hits, can’t remember them all
While I’m takin’ a shit, look at the plaques on the wall
Y’all just sit back, won’t you kick back
Keep on actin’ like you did that, got no respect
For nobody who’s just fake in life, ayy, ayy
You ain’t really who you say you are
So pick up the pace, there ain’t no slowin’ me up
Get the fuck out my face, can you stop blowing me up?
‘Cause one time is expensive, one mill a setlist
Bought a new car ‘fore you woke up for breakfast, yeah

[Chorus: Post Malone]
‘Cause they ain’t ever seen me fold out of pressure
They ain’t never, ever seen me fold, nah, never
Always keep one up on ’em ’cause I’m too clever
I would never, ever sell my soul, nah, never
‘Cause I been on the road, been on the road, I
Quit actin’ like you been with me this whole time
‘Cause I been on the road, been on the road, I
Quit actin’ like you been with me this whole time

[Verse 2: Meek Mill]
Yeah, where you been? (Where you been?)
When it was time to do some work and put it in (Put it in)
I just be laughin’ when I see ’em, look at them (Ha)
Leave when I lose and pop back up as soon as I win (Uh)
You ain’t my day one and I know you not my friend
So I can’t judge you when you do some phony shit and just pretend
Like you really down with me, because bein’ loyal starts within
I seen that money overpower that love and turn it thin
But it ain’t stop me, I just kept goin’ up, took it on the chin
I wish every time they said I would fold, I’d make an M
Fuck around and be as rich as Jeff Bezos, say it again
Never lose, I go overtime on ’em, stay in that gym
Let’s get it

[Chorus: Post Malone]
‘Cause they ain’t ever seein’ me fold under pressure
They ain’t never, ever seen me fold, nah, never
Always keep one up on ’em ’cause I’m too clever
I would never, ever sell my soul, nah, never
‘Cause I been on the road, been on the road, I
Quit actin’ like you been with me this whole time
‘Cause I been on the road, been on the road, I
Quit actin’ like you been with me this whole time

[Verse 3: Lil Baby]
I’m tired of bein’ tired
This my last shot, you can’t be mad, at least I tried
We supposed to be grown, but yet you still acting childish
I can get on the jet alone, I don’t need no extra baggage
This year turned into a savage, I got baguettes in my necklace
Driving fast and I won’t crash it and I’m supposed to be sober
But some kind of way, I just keep getting older
It’s gonna take more than some pressure to fold me
Tried as hard as I can, but at this point it’s outta my hands
I ain’t runnin’ out of these bands for nothin’ or no one
She say I’m a dog, but it takes one to know one
Been goin’ hard, been by myself, I don’t need no love

[Chorus: Post Malone]
‘Cause they ain’t ever seein’ me fold under pressure
They ain’t never, ever seen me fold, nah, never
Always keep one up on ’em ’cause I’m too clever
I would never, ever sell my soul, nah, never
‘Cause I been on the road, been on the road, I
Quit actin’ like you been with me this whole time
‘Cause I been on the road, been on the road, I
Quit actin’ like you been with me this whole time

[Outro: Post Malone]
Mm, oh, oh no
Mm, oh, oh no
On the road, oh
