A Little Bird Told Me

Two former Twitter employees were recently exposed as spies for Saudi Arabia. The employees had access to personal information and account data for millions of Twitter users. Mike Chapple, former NSA computer scientist, concedes that Twitter was a victim (as a target of its employees), but also argues that Twitter “had a responsibility to make sure that their resources weren’t being misused.” Of note, neither employee was in a role that would have required access to the user information they pilfered. Do you think Twitter was a victim, at fault, or both?
