DeeKay Kwon has around 180K followers on his Twitter account who loyally follow him because of his attractive artwork and NFT projects. For a short time, Twitter’s two-factor authentication was glitchy. The hacker took the chance to hack into DeeKay’s Twitter immediately.
The hacker then tweeted a link with a post that read, “The LetsWalk Collection Airdrop is now live! Only 1,000 lucky people are able to claim! Good luck!”
