Twitter takes the initiative to report hacking incidents to EU data protection agencies

According to Bloomberg reports, Twitter has taken the initiative to report to the EU data protection agency the incident that it had previously been hacked. Graham Doyle, spokesperson for the Irish Data Protection Commission (DPC), the EU data protection agency, said that the regulator has received notification of the incident and is evaluating it. Twitter is still investigating and evaluating how the attack was carried out, but it did not disclose whether other information in the account (such as private information) was affected. This incident has sparked speculation about the identity of the perpetrator and its actual goal. Some cybersecurity experts speculate that the attack covered up a more “evil” operation aimed at obtaining sensitive data. Twitter also said it is working closely with regulators. Chain Wen noted that DPC is the main regulatory agency for Twitter and other American technology companies in the European Union, all of which have European headquarters in Ireland. Last week, the Twitter accounts of many celebrities and dignitaries and some companies were hacked, including Apple, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Bill Gates, former US President Barack Obama, US presidential candidate Biden, etc. All accounts have posted information about digital currency phishing scams.
