The Personal Twitter handle of India Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi was hacked on Sunday morning, his Office said.
During the time the account was compromised, a tweet was sent falsely stating that India had officially adopted Bitcoin as legal tender, and that the country has bought the digital currency, offering a link where citizens can access BTC.
His handle was later restored after the issue was escalated to twitter.
The Twitter handle of PM Narendra Modi was very briefly compromised. The matter was escalated to Twitter and the account has been immediately secured.
In the brief period that the account was compromised, any Tweet shared must be ignored.

The Modi-led Government had drafted a bill last month that seek to ban private cryptocurrencies with a view to allowing the country’s Central Bank launch its official digital currency.
