Ridgewood NJ, Twitter’s former head of security Peiter “Mudge” Zatko has accused the company of negligent security practices. He claims that Twitter misled federal regulators about its safety and that the company fails to properly estimate the number of bots on its platform. About half of Twitter’s 7,000 or so full-time employees have access to users’ sensitive personal data and internal software. Twitter has failed to delete user data in the past as the records were spread too widely among internal systems to be tracked. The company could face significant fines if the accusations are proven to be correct.
