I thought he owned it ? Seems odd he would have restrictions on using it.

Closure of Twitter Brussels office prompts online safety fears

Digital policy executives’ departure elicits unease over adherence to EU rules on disinformation and hate speech

Julia Mozer and Dario La Nasa, who were in charge of Twitter’s digital policy in Europe, left the company last week, according to five people with knowledge of the departures.

Other Twitter executives in the small but vital Brussels office, seen as a crucial conduit to European policymakers, had left at the start of the month during company-wide cuts that removed around half of its 7,500-strong workforce.

Mozer and La Nasa survived the initial cull, but no longer work there after the company’s new owner Elon Musk issued an ultimatum last week for staff to commit to a “hardcore working culture”. It is unclear whether the pair resigned or were made redundant.

Ffs, twitter got hacked night before last night and 5.5 million peoples email address and phone numbers were stolen, probably got the bank or credit card details of anyone who paid for anything on there to I shouldn't wonder, who didn't see this coming when he sacked all the engineers, the genius running the place didn't even have the decency to tell anyone, norton did though fortunately

Re: [Updated] Elon Musk $44 Billion Twitter deal back on

Indeed, the data was available in the summer.

Quote:
It was gathered that user data was first posted on a hacking forum with a $30,000 price tag in July, but the recent sale offered this information for free, according to Bleeping Computer.

It was obtained using an API bug that was patched in Jan 2022.

Quote:
Twitter confirmed in August that bad actors took advantage of the vulnerability but patched the flaw in January 2022.

There is no evidence they obtained "bank or credit card details".
In fact, they already had peoples information, this flaw just allowed them to get a twitter id.
(So no email address and phone numbers were stolen either).

Quote:
[it allowed] people to submit phone numbers and email addresses into the API to retrieve the associated Twitter ID
