Elon Musk puts Twitter at risk of billions in fines

As chief privacy officer Damien Kieran, chief information security officer Lea Kissner and chief compliance officer Marianne Fogarty have all quit in the fresh wave of resignations, the CEO of Twitter Elon Musk has put the microblogging site at risk of billions of dollars in fines and a company lawyer has also warned. An attorney on the company’s privacy team said that Musk has shown that his only priority with Twitter users is how to monetise them.

The lawyer wrote, “I do not believe he cares about the human rights activists. The dissidents, our uers in un-monetisable regions, and all the other users who have made Twitter the global town square you have all spent so long building, and we all love. Everyone here should also know that our CISO, chief privacy officer and chief compliance officer, ALL resigned the last night. This news will be buried in the return-to-office drama. I believe that is international.”

Musk’s new legal department is now asking engineers to aceself-certify compliance with FTC rules and other privacy laws, based on the lawyer’s note. According to a statement, an FTC spokesperson said that the agency was tracking recent developments at Twitter with deep concern. 

It is said by the FTC spokesperson that no CEO or company is above the law and companies must follow their consent decrees. Their revised consent order gives them new tools to ensure compliance.
