It’s no longer news that Twitter doesn’t play fair.
However, we’re still learning the extent to just how unfair higher ups and staff at the social media giant are willing to get.
Now, a whistleblower is out with an accusation that should have every Twitter user both nervous and in rage.
Former head of security for Twitter, Peiter ‘Mudge’ Zatko, has been blowing the lid on the social media giant’s range of dishonest practices.
As a whistleblower, Zatko has revealed Twitter has vulnerabilities that leaves it open to “foreign spying or manipulation, hacking and disinformation campaigns.”
He says the Big Tech megacompany does not reliably delete users’ data – and in some cases has even lost track of the information of deleted accounts.
And Mudge has backed up Elon Musk’s claims of rampant “bots” on the platform – and worse, that the company routinely misrepresents the amount of bots, including in it’s now infamous deal with Musk.
Twitter has shrugged off Zatko’s allegation, saying he’s just a disgruntled former employee.
But even former Disney CEO Bob Igor, who previously considered buying the troubled social media company backs up the bot claim.

“We estimated with some of Twitter’s help that a substantial portion were not real,” Igor said of bots on the platform. “I don’t remember the number but we discounted the value heavily.”
But now Zatko is out with his latest whistleblower report, and it may be the biggest one yet.
If you’re not a woke radical, there are only two ways to react to the report – clothes-tearing, green Hulk level anger; or living in fear that you’re next.
Zatko testified before a U.S. Senate committee, where he once again lowered the boom on Twitter.

In an exchange with MAGA Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri, the former Twitter security head revealed that about 4,000 Twitter employees have access to your personal information – and are ready to dox you at a moment’s notice.
The information in the hands of thousands of woke Twitter employees includes geo-location data and IP addresses.
“Wow, that’s a significant concern,” Sen. Hawley said. “4,000 people with the ability to dox individual users who pick up the phone and use Twitter.”
Doxing is “Cancel Culture’s” evil cousin.
According to the Oxford dictionary, doxing is defined as: search for and publish private or identifying information about (a particular individual) on the internet, typically with malicious intent.
In other words, it’s when someone who doesn’t like you, for whatever reasons, publicly puts out to the world your personal information – often including your contact info or location details.
It often comes with some type of “call to action,” to protest, boycott or harass the doxed individual.
Doxing has recently led to another new trend popular with the Social Justice Warriors on the Left – swatting.
Swatting is when someone takes your personal information and call the police reporting some type of violent crime took place at your home.
The intent is to at least inconvenience and scare the target with a police raid, often in the middle of the night.
Steve Bannon and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) are two recent, high-profile victims of swatting.
