Hackers take over Robinhood’s Twitter account to promote scam token

A since-removed tweet called on Robinhood’s 1.1 million Twitter followers to each pay $0.0005 for a token called ‘RBH’ on the Binance Smart Chain.

An unknown group or individual has hacked the Twitter account behind crypto and stock trading platform Robinhood to push users to buy a ‘new’ token.

Many Crypto Twitter users reported on Jan. 25 that Robinhood had posted a tweet calling on its 1.1 million followers to each pay $0.0005 for a token called ‘RBH’ on the Binance Smart Chain. Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao reported the company’s security team had locked the account linked in the tweet “pending further investigations”.

At the time of publication, the tweet was no longer visible on Robinhood’s account.
