Twitter Stops the Functioning of its Tweeting via SMS Feature

Its quite funny to hear about the fact that Twitter's CEO is the next person who got hacked. In response to this situation, Twitter has announced that it has temporarily disabled its 'Tweeting via SMS' function.

Numerous number of racist and offensive tweets were sent to Dorsey's followers and hackers were also sending bomb threats via SMS.

The technique used by hackers in this case is related to SIM swapping.

For time being, the feature has been stopped by Twitter and it is working on providing more authenticated ways.
