The British army announced that its Twitter and YouTube accounts had been hacked on Sunday.
“We are aware of the hacking of the military’s Twitter and YouTube accounts, and an investigation is underway,” an army spokesman said.
The British military later regained control of his Twitter account and YouTube channel after they were briefly hacked and used to post comments about cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens.
A post on the British army’s Twitter account said: “We apologize for the temporary outage. We will conduct a full investigation and learn from this incident.”
Earlier, the account retweeted a number of tweets about non-fungible tokens.
The army’s YouTube channel was also restored after changing its name to (Ark Invest) and publishing a number of videos related to cryptocurrency.
The number of followers of the British army account on Twitter is 362,000, while the number of subscribers to the channel is 177,000.
