Twitter Is Now Facing The Heat From Congressional Investigators


Is it all over for the social media giant?

Things seem to be going from bad to worse for Twitter. Elon Musk has backed out of the deal and is now going to drag them through court…

A former high-level Twitter executive, Peiter Zatko, recently came out against the company…

And now? Those claims from that same whistleblower have prompted a Congressional probe into the social media platform for its numerous alleged consumer violations and security vulnerabilities.

Twitter has long managed to evade the long arm of the federal government by doing its bidding, but is that all about to change?

Nothing lasts forever and I don’t think the network will be able to outlive all the negative publicity and the growing mountain of scandals…

Here’s what Zatko recently told CNN and how this all feeds into the current Congressional probe:

The Epoch Times reports:

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said in a statement that he is looking into Zatko’s allegations.

“The whistleblower’s allegations of widespread security failures at Twitter, willful misrepresentations by top executives to government agencies, and penetration of the company by foreign intelligence raise serious concerns,” he said.


The New York Post states:

The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on Sept. 13 with Twitter’s former security chief Peiter “Mudge” Zatko to discuss allegations from his whistleblower complaint that the social media company misled regulators.
