Spies: Whistleblower Says Twitter a National Security Threat

As Twitter’s fate continues to hang in the balance of a takeover bid they botched by fibbing about bots and spam accounts, the social media platform is now dealing with a bombshell whistleblower.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been in talks to buy Twitter for months now, but the platform’s inability to satisfy his concerns over the number of “fake” accounts they harbor has stalled the purchase.

This week, to add a little more salacious misery to the social media leviathan’s litigious trouble, an insider has now come forward to identify some serious concerns about the site’s security systems.

Twitter has major security problems that pose a threat to its own users’ personal information, to company shareholders, to national security, and to democracy, according to an explosive whistleblower disclosure obtained exclusively by CNN and The Washington Post.

And then, shockingly:

The disclosure, sent last month to Congress and federal agencies, paints a picture of a chaotic and reckless environment at a mismanaged company that allows too many of its staff access to the platform’s central controls and most sensitive information without adequate oversight. It also alleges that some of the company’s senior-most executives have been trying to cover up Twitter’s serious vulnerabilities, and that one or more current employees may be working for a foreign intelligence service.

The news could drive Twitter’s value down again, giving Elon Musk a potential bargaining chip as his takeover bid continues to simmer.
