Twitter Indian-origin CEO Parag Agarwal has hit out at the company’s former security chief Peter ‘Mudge’ JETCO, saying their false claims are ‘full of inconsistencies and inaccuracies and presented without significant context’. Agarwal came out in the open on the bots controversy after a long time, as Jetco was fired by the company in January this year for “poor performance”. He claimed on Tuesday that Twitter lied about the actual number of bots on its platform and misled federal regulators about users’ data protection.

a false narrative was spread

“There are reports outlining claims about Twitter’s privacy, security and data protection practices,” Agarwal said in an internal message, made by Mudge Jetko, a former Twitter executive who was sentenced in January for ineffective leadership and poor performance. Was removed in 2022.” “We are reviewing the revised claims that have been published, but what we have seen so far is a false narrative that is full of inconsistencies and inaccuracies and presented without significant context,” he said.

JETCO also alleged


JETCO also alleged that the Indian government forced the micro-blogging platform to appoint a ‘government agent’ and allow it to access sensitive data of users. “But none of this takes away from the important work you do and continues to protect the privacy and security of our customers and their data,” he told employees. According to Jetco’s whistleblower disclosure with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), obtained by CNN and The Washington Post, Twitter has “major security issues that may pose a threat to the personal information of its own users, to the company’s shareholders, to national security.” and pose a threat to democracy.”
