Shocking News on Twitter: Because of one of the most significant data breaches at Twitter, the personal information of 400 million Twitter users has been made available for purchase on the dark web. After criticizing Twitter’s business practices and guidelines, Elon Musk may find himself in the middle of a scandal of this proportions.
The investigation into the prior data breach, which affected more than 5.4 million people, has already been initiated by the DPC.
