Twitter source code leaked online by a formal employee, know what it means
According to a legal document filed on Sunday by the social media business Twitter, some of it's source code, the core computer code that powers the social network, was exposed online. GitHub, an online software development platform, had portions of the code public "for at least several months," but they were removed when the social media business submitted a "copyright infringement complaint." The US District Court for the Northern District of California has been contacted by Twitter to request that GitHub reveal the identify of the user, who appears to go by the moniker "FreeSpeechEnthusiast," according to The New York Times.
No details about the source leak
Who is responsible for the source code leak?
Twitter officials have a strong hunch that a former worker who left the business "within the last year" is accountable, according to people familiar with the internal inquiry into the leak. Since making his purchase a few months ago, Musk has let go more than half the workforce. The leaker on GitHub was described as "FreeSpeechEnthusiast" in the Twitter court brief; this alias is thought to be an allusion to Elon Musk. Early in January, the user made a single contribution, and their profile is still visible.
