Linus Tech Tips, one of the most compelling tech YouTubers on the stage, as well as its sister channels, TechQuickie, TechLinked have been taken over by programmers. It appears to be that the programmers have changed the names of both TechQuickie and TechLinked to Tesla.

The thought process behind the hacking is by all accounts to advance cryptographic money tricks. Linus and his group have more than 15 million supporters on their foundation and have made many recordings, with content going from surveys to gaming and diversion arrangements.

The LTT store and LTT’s Twitter both appear to be unaffected and the hacking is by all accounts detached to YouTube. At last, the LTT YouTube channel was ended as the channel disregarded the YouTube TOS. Before the end was executed, the Linus Tech Tips channel re-transferred numerous more established recordings, including some that had been marked as “don’t distribute.”

In the mean time, Techquickie, which has been renamed to “Tesla,” is at present running a crypto trick live stream of a profound phony Elon Musk, Jack Dorsey, and two others.

It is indistinct how much Linus Sebastian and different individuals from LMG have been impacted by the emergency. They are yet o put out a proclamation in regards to something very similar on any of the web-based entertainment channels. The latest Linus Tech Tips tweet is 13 hours old.

The LTT break was broadly tweeted and immediately became one of the hashtags circulating around the web via virtual entertainment. Twitter client @CharizardAW was one of many fans sharing accounts of the hacking on Twitter.
