The Twitter account of the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) was hacked on Saturday. There are currently 40 lakh followers on the Twitter account of the CMO of UP (@CMOfficeUP). The breach came to light when unidentified hackers published a post based on a tutorial titled “How to turn on your BAYC / MAYC animated on Twitter” using the UP CMO Twitter handle. In addition, a cartoonist picture was used as a profile picture on the UP CMO account.
