After I&B Ministry, Zee5 tamil’s twitter handle hacked & renamed to Elon Musk

Zee5 Tamil’s Twitter handle was hacked by an unknown hacker and the handle name was changed to Elon Musk. It’s the fifth time (as far as we have kept track) that the Twitter handle of an Indian organisation has been hacked, and renamed to Elon Musk.

The hacker hacked into the Twitter handle of Zee5 Tamil, which has 42.8K followers, started replying to Elon Musk’s recent tweets, making it difficult for users to distinguish between the original Elon Musk’s account and the hacked account. The hacker also asked users to solve a puzzle on to earn a giveaway coin. The account has been restored by the management of Zee5 Tamil though
