On August 23, The Washington Post published an explosive 84-page whistleblower complaint from renowned hacker and former Twitter security chief Peiter Zatko.

In the complaint, the security chief — better known as “Mudge” — accused the company of “lying” to Elon Musk about spam accounts on its site, and having poor security practices that could violate a previous FTC settlement agreement.

A Twitter spokesperson said the claims are “riddled with inaccuracies” and that Zatko was fired for “ineffective leadership and poor performance.”
