Twitter probed over security lapse before Elon Musk takeover


The U.S. securities regulator is investigating how Twitter managed a 2018 security lapse that exposed personal user information before billionaire Elon Musk bought the social media platform last year, Bloomberg News reported.

The agency has been scrutinizing whether the former top executives failed to adequately disclose those privacy issues to shareholders or put in place proper controls, according to the report, which cited people familiar with the matter.

At the time, the company was being led by Jack Dorsey with Ned Segal as CFO and Parag Agrawal as the chief technology officer.
