Twitter Source Code Leaks On Github And Company Requests The Identity Of The Perpetrator
JAKARTA - Twitter Inc. has leaked some of the source code and social media platforms owned by billionaire Elon Musk are seeking information about the person responsible for it, according to a court report.
According to the report, "several footage" of the Twitter source code, which is used to run the company online, was posted on Github, Microsoft's platform for sharing software development codes by a user named 'FreeSpeechEnthususiast'.
Github said it had removed the code on Friday, March 24 at Twitter's request. Twitter has also asked the US District Court for California's Northern District to order Github to produce "All identification information" linked to the username 'FreeSpeechEnthusiast', showing a report on March 24.
Github did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment on whether to provide the information.
Github also did not comment on how long the Twitter source code has been publicly available. Twitter has also not responded to a request for comment.
In general, the source code creation is done by a software development team using certain programming languages. This process involves continuous planning, design, coding, testing, and repair. The source code is then used to run the Twitter platform online.
