Twitter Says Parts of its Source Code Posted Online

They are seeking out the leak

Some of the computer code that powers Twitter has been leaked online, a legal filing claims, posing the latest challenge for Elon Musk’s social media network.

A user identified in court documents as "FreeSpeechEnthusiast” allegedly shared parts of Twitter’s source code on GitHub, an online platform used by software developers. Twitter, claiming copyright infringement, asked a court on Friday to compel GitHub to identify the poster and anyone who downloaded the code.

A GitHub spokesman confirmed in an emailed statement that the company complied with Twitter’s request to take down the code but declined further comment. Twitter did not respond to a request for comment.
