Juli Clover for MacRumors:

Apple users should be careful not to believe the fake tweet, which is a scam to collect bitcoin. Twitter has been deleting the fake tweets, but the scammers who have breached the accounts have been repeatedly posting them.

The tweet that was posted on the Apple Twitter account has since been deleted. Given the number of high profile accounts that have been breached, the hack may have originated from a Twitter security vulnerability.

MacDailyNews Take: Bill Gates being hacked is wholly unsurprising – expected, even – but the other hacks show that Twitter seems to have a rather large security hole.
