Twitter Inc TWTR.N misled federal regulators about its defenses against hackers and spam accounts, CNN and the Washington Post reported on Tuesday, citing whistleblower disclosures by the social media company's former security chief Peiter Zatko. In an 84-page complaint, Zatko, a famed hacker more widely known as "Mudge," alleged Twitter falsely claimed it had a solid security plan and said he had warned colleagues that half the company's servers were running out-of-date and vulnerable software, according to the reports.

The whistleblower filing comes as the social media company is embroiled in a legal battle with Tesla Inc TSLA.O Chief Executive Elon Musk after the world's richest person said in July he was ending an agreement to buy the company in a $44 billion deal alleging it had violated the deal contract. Musk has accused Twitter of hiding information about how it calculates the percentage of bots on the service. A trial is scheduled for Oct. 17.

I think Twitter deserves to go under just based on how biased they are towards the left, muslim terrorists, and how hate filled they've been toward the right, and Christians.

Musk is right, and this hacker deserves to be heard in Musk's defence against the woke army at Twitter HQ.
