Ready for Sunday Rundown #36? Here we go! 🙂

Google announces 100,000 scholarships

Google announced three new online certificate programs in data analytics, project management and user experience design. 

In detail, the certificates are created and taught by Google employees and do not require a college degree. Moreover, you can finish them in three to six months through the online learning platform Coursera. Furthermore, Google says it will consider all of its certificates as the equivalent of a four-year college degree for related roles at the company.

Twitter’s massive hacker attack

In other words, the Twitter accounts of major companies and individuals were compromised on Wednesday in one of the most widespread and confounding breaches the platform has ever seen, all in service of promoting a bitcoin scam that earned its creators nearly $120,000.

Following the unprecedented hacks of accounts including President Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Kanye West, Michael Bloomberg, and Apple, Twitter took the drastic step of blocking new tweets from every verified user, compromised or no, as well as locking all compromised accounts.
