Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter set off a chain reaction.

Establishment elites were furious that their favorite social media platform was out of their control.

But Musk revealed one devastating attack on Twitter.

Elon Musk put a giant target on his back when he wrestled control of Twitter away from the establishment.

The former heads at Twitter were more than willing to play ball with the government, media companies, and think tanks with an agenda.

Now that Musk is in charge, the establishment has lost a massive propaganda tool.

That’s why Musk and Twitter have been under constant attack.

And a disgruntled employee allegedly leaked Twitter’s source code, seemingly in hopes of damaging the company.

Worries about disgruntled former employees and stay-behinds may have just become reality

Musk is planning to make parts of the source code public in short order, but the leak could be damaging nonetheless.

Prior to the leak, Musk wrote, “Twitter will open source all code used to recommend tweets on March 31st. Our ‘algorithm’ is overly complex & not fully understood internally. People will discover many silly things, but we’ll patch issues as soon as they’re found! We’re developing a simplified approach to serve more compelling tweets, but it’s still a work in progress. That’ll also be open source. Providing code transparency will be incredibly embarrassing at first, but it should lead to rapid improvement in recommendation quality. Most importantly, we hope to earn your trust.”

Twitter’s black-box algorithm has been the topic of much controversy, especially after Musk revealed that former employees inside the company were putting their thumb on the scales and stopping certain topics from going viral.

The New York Times reported that “Mr. Musk has worried about the possibility of leaks and theft by disgruntled former employees during his mass layoffs. In November, he locked Twitter’s offices and asked employees not to come in while cuts were being made. Over the last few months, Twitter has also prevented engineers from making changes to the site’s code ahead of layoffs for fear that someone would sabotage the platform on the way out the door.”

It seems as though Musk’s fears were valid because Twitter’s source code was allowed to stay online for months thanks to web hosting service GitHub.

Twitter is currently in court in an attempt to learn the identity of the person who leaked the proprietary source code.

As Musk’s attempts to disrupt the Big Tech-Big Government censorship nexus are continuing to hit roadblocks.
