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”.
