Elon Musk’s Twitter has been embroiled in another controversy as its source code was leaked online, raising concerns about the security of the platform. The latest development came to light after Twitter issued a subpoena to GitHub, a software collaboration platform, to identify the user who shared snippets of the source code without permission.
According to court documents filed with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, the username of the person who shared the data was “FreeSpeechEnthusiast”. The user allegedly posted links to the source code on a number of platforms, including Telegram and Twitter.
The leak has raised concerns about the potential for security breaches and data theft on Twitter. The platform is already under scrutiny for its handling of user data and its susceptibility to hacking attacks.
In response to the leak, Twitter has issued a statement saying that it takes the security of its platform seriously and is investigating the matter. The company has also urged users to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity.
Meanwhile, Elon Musk, who is known for his active presence on Twitter, has not commented on the matter publicly. However, the latest leak is just the latest in a string of controversies that have dogged the billionaire entrepreneur’s use of social media.
Last year, Musk was sued by the Securities and Exchange Commission for tweets that allegedly misled investors about Tesla’s financial performance. The case was eventually settled, but it highlighted the potential risks of social media for businesses and investors.
