In a recent interview with Tucker Carlson, Twitter owner Elon Musk, explained that until he purchased the company, the government had vast access to the social network users’ information. The Daily Mail’s James Gordon reports:
Twitter CEO Elon Musk has claimed the U.S. government had access to users private messages on Twitter.
In a wide-ranging interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, set to be broadcast on Monday and Tuesday night, Musk made the startling claims noting how he was shocked to learn that the government had full access to private communications on the platform.
The billionaire tycoon told Carlson how unaware of the fact until he joined the company and expressed surprise at the degree to which government agencies were able to monitor social media.
‘The degree to which government agencies effectively had full access to everything that was going on on Twitter blew my mind,’ Musk said. ‘I was not aware of that.’
‘Would that include people’s DMs?’ Carlson probed.
‘Yes,’ Musk replied.
The extensive interview with Carlson is set to air over the next two nights.
Musk’s admission that agencies had full access to everything happening on Twitter, including direct messages, is likely to raise concerns among users who may have assumed that their private conversations were entirely private and secure.
