The official Twitter account of Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress has been hacked and its profile name and picture changed.
The profile name has been changed to “Yuga Labs”, which appears to be the name of a crypto company.
No new tweet has, however, been posted after the hacking. Trinamool has said that they have informed Twitter about the hacking and asked them to get it fixed.
This is similar to the 2020 case, in which the Twitter handles of several prominent persons in the US were targeted by hackers.

“The official Twitter handle of the All India Trinamool Congress has been compromised. We are in touch with officials from Twitter who are working to rectify the issue. They have assured us of prompt action,” said Trinamool leader Derek O’Brien.
Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Barack Obama, Joe Biden and Kanye West were among those who were targeted in the mass hack and tweets requesting donations in cryptocurrency were posted from their accounts.
Twitter had then said it was a “co-ordinated” attack targeting its employees “with access to internal systems and tools”.
