I was amused the other day by the news that the Twitter accounts for many famous and solvent people had been hacked: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-53445090

The scam was: send us some Bitcoin money and we will double it and send it back. Except, of course, they wouldn’t.

Why was I amused?

Here are some people who had accounts affected: Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Bill Gates…

But who is the most famous user of Twitter in the world? Donald Trump.

Was his account attacked? No. Why not?

Because no-one would ever believe he would generously send anyone free money. Ever.
