Doja Cat's Twitter Hacked to Promote Solana Meme Coin

Just like Hulk Hogan, 50 Cent, and Metallica before her, rap superstar Doja Cat has had her Twitter account hacked to push a Solana-based meme coin. 

She quickly informed her 24 million Instagram followers that she wasn't behind the posts.

The hacking incident started around 7:15 pm ET on Monday when Doja Cat's Twitter account began sharing crypto-related content. 

The first post included a link to a wallet address and a message urging users to "buy $DOJA or else."

The hacker posted over two dozen times, removing Doja Cat's profile picture and description from her account, which has about 5.6 million followers. Twitter users quickly recognized the posts as the work of a hacker.

The hacker also mentioned other celebrities, including Iggy Azalea, who is known for her frequent tweets about her $MOTHER meme coin and Crypto Twitter. 

In response to the Doja Cat hack, Azalea tweeted, “Get rugged if y’all want, but I’m cool with that girl in real life so y’all messed up with that tweet, hackers.”

Blockchain records and market data show that the new $DOJA token, hosted on Solana market maker Raydium, saw relatively little activity compared to similar incidents, with fewer than 15,000 transactions and about $2.2 million in volume.

This hack is the latest in a series of incidents involving hacked social media accounts of celebrities, often promoting Solana-based meme coins.

Last month, former wrestling star Hulk Hogan's Twitter account was hacked for a similar scam, followed by rapper 50 Cent and then Metallica.
