....Breitbart News previously reported that Peiter Zatko filed an explosive whistleblower complaint against Twitter in July. Zatko was a prolific hacker who was hired as Twitter’s security head before being fired in January by new CEO Parag Agrawal. In his whistleblower complaint, Zatko alleged that Twitter failed to protect user data, refused to address warnings when raised with executives, and lied about its security issues.

Zatko recently testified before the Senate about Twitter’s issues — here are four key takeaways from his testimony

1: Zatko claims 4,000 Twitter employees have access to users’ personal info...​


...Hawley asked: “including geolocation data, did you testify to that earlier today?”

Zatko said: “I know that Twitter has IP locations and that they do use geolocation services based upon IP addresses.”

Hawley remarked: “Wow, 4,000 employees with access to that data. That’s extraordinary. So those employees would be in a position than if they wanted to, to get this information and docs Twitter users. Is that fair to say?”

Zatko responded: “That is a concern of mine, sir, yes.”...

2: Indian government agents may be working at Twitter...​


...One of the disturbing things that I saw based upon being 10 years behind where I would expect a modern tech company to be was a lack of an ability to internally look for and identify inappropriate access within their own systems.”

He added: “Other than the person who I believed with high confidence to be a foreign agent placed in a position from India, it was only going to be from an outside agency or somebody alerting Twitter that somebody already existed, that they would find the person what I did notice when we did know of a person inside acting on behalf of a foreign interest as an unregistered agent.”...

3: Twitter employees can access a user’s phone number, address, and location at any time...​


....A user on Twitter was harassing some members of the executive team and some members of the board. And as an example, this person, the CTO came to me and said Mudge [Zatko’s hacker handle], you know, is this a real viable threat? Do I need to be worried? You know, who is this person? And it took me maybe 30 minutes to reach out to an employee and say, what do we know about this person?

And then it only took that person, maybe 10 minutes to get back to me and say, here’s who they are. This is the address where they live. This is where they are physically at this moment. They’re on their phone. We know their phone number. We also know all of the other accounts that they’ve tried to set up on the system and hide, and we know who they are on the other social media platforms as well....





4: Twitter employees can tweet from any Twitter account...​


When asked about his previous statements that Twitter engineers could tweet as anybody, Zatko stated: “That meant a Twitter engineer understanding how the running systems and the data flows were operating, could then access and inject or put forward information. As I mentioned in my oral statement as any of the senators sitting here today.”....

And what makes it all the worse is that the people who have these abilities are among the most evil people the world has ever known: if you are a Christian or a patriot they hate you, and the dogma of relativism they build their belief system on allows them to justify anything.

Their definition of 'tolerance', eh?
