“I’m going to the supermarket to buy a chip from the … supermarket”. Well, virtual operators are out there to embrace a specific audience, with proposals that are sometimes not offered by major operators.

The so-called MVNO is an alternative to focus on specific needs, many of which we go unnoticed. The most recent is Intercel, from Banco Inter. Recently, they offered double bonus promotions.

E-commerce may have a new tax: in an interview with Jovem Pan radio, Economy Minister Paulo Guedes expressed interest in creating a 0.2% tax for electronic payments. According to him, this would make it possible to reduce charges in other areas. The proposal should be submitted after the tax reform project, promised since 2019.

On Wednesday (15), Twitter received one of the biggest hacker attacks in the history of the social network. Several profiles of verified personalities and companies, such as Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Apple, Kanye West and others have published fraud tweets involving bitcoin transfers, with the promise to double the amount.

The invasion took time to resolve. It took Twitter to stop any verified profile from creating a tweet on the network. More than R $ 633 thousand were transferred to the currency wallet until 7:37 pm on Wednesday night.

The company said some of the company’s employees were the target of a social engineering scam, allowing the hacker to have access to an administrative tool on the platform to gain access to the affected accounts.
