So many of us have our eyes on Mar-A-Lago that we have forgotten about the Musk-Twitter battle.
Musk wants to know the true extent of the automated bot issue on Twitter and no one is in a better position to give this information than Jack Dorsey—Twitter’s former C.E.O.
Still, it remains to be seen if Dorsey will essentially act as an informant against his brainchild…
Here’s what we currently know:

Axios provided more details on the subpoena:
For example, it wants access to “documents and communications” regarding Twitter’s use of monetizable daily active users (mDAU) as a “key metric.”
It also wants information on the “impact or effect of false or spam accounts on Twitter’s business and operations.”

Breitbart News recently reported that Twitter’s former head of security, Peiter Zatko, a widely known hacker who went by the screen name “Mudge,” has come forward with a whistleblower complaint alleging that the company’s management misled federal regulators and the company’s board of directors about “extreme, egregious deficiencies.”
