The British military regained control of its Twitter and YouTube accounts on Sunday after they were briefly hacked and used to post information about cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens.
“Apologies for temporarily interrupting our feed. We will fully investigate and learn from this incident,” a post on the @BritishArmy Twitter account said. Earlier, the account had retweeted several posts about NFTs.
The Army’s YouTube account, which had been renamed “Ark Invest” and featured several cryptocurrency-related videos, was also restored to its original state.
His Twitter feed currently has 362,000 followers, while the YouTube channel has 177,000 subscribers.
Ark Invest is the name of a global investment company. The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment submitted by email and on the company’s website.
