Part of the source code of Twitter, owned by American businessman Elon Musk, has been in the public domain for several months.

This is reported by Bloomberg.

The code on which the functions are based on the internal tools of the service was placed on GitHub, a repository currently owned by Microsoft Corp. GitHub has already deleted the data at the request of Twitter, but it lay on the resource for several months.

The account from which the post was posted belongs to a certain FreeSpeechEnthusiast. A user signed up for GitHub at the beginning of the year.

Now Twitter is making every effort to establish who exactly owns the account, and also collects information about users who uploaded this data. The social network asked GitHub to provide the names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, social media profiles and IP addresses of these individuals. An internal investigation into the data breach is also underway.

Recall, becoming at the helm of Twitter, Musk fired 80% of the staff of 7500 employees of the company. In this way, he decided to reduce her losses.
