It is still unknown whether the perpetrators had access to the private messages of the hacked accounts.
The investigation into Wednesday's attack on Twitter continues, in which an unknown number of celebrities, including Elon Musk, Bill Gates and Barack Obama, have taken control. According to recent information released by Twitter, the attackers targeted far more than a dozen previously thought, numbering roughly 130 – however, the company said only a small part of it was actually accessed and tweeted to the perpetrators. It remains unclear whether attackers had access to private messages from affected accounts. In addition to Twitter, the case is already being investigated by the FBI.
