The British Army says it is investigating after its Twitter and YouTube accounts were hacked.

Videos on cryptocurrency using images of billionaire businessman Elon Musk appeared on the YouTube channel.

The Twitter feed appeared to retweet several posts related to NFTs – a type of electronic artwork for investment.

The Army confirmed the “breach”, saying it took information security “extremely seriously” and was resolving the issue. Both accounts have now been restored.

An Army spokesperson added: “Whilst we have now resolved the issue an investigation is ongoing and it would be inappropriate to comment further.”

It is not clear who is behind the hacking incidents, which also saw the accounts renamed.

“Apologies for the temporary interruption to our feed. We will conduct a full investigation and learn from this incident,” a post on the @BritishArmy Twitter handle said. Earlier the account had retweeted several posts about NFTs.

The army’s YouTube account, which had been renamed ‘Ark Invest’ and showed several videos relating to cryptocurrency, was also restored to its original state.

Its Twitter feed currently has 362,000 followers,

while the YouTube channel has 177,000 subscribers. Ark Invest is the name of a global investment firm. The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment submitted via email and the company’s website.
