Twitter loses two security team leaders

Twitter has announced that its head of security and its Chief information security officer are leaving the company.

Since Parag Agrawal took over from Jack Dorsey as Chief Executive, there has been a continuous leadership shake up at Twitter.

Peiter Zatko, a famed hacker more widely known as “Mudge,” was appointed head of security in 2020 after Twitter suffered a security breach that allowed hackers to tweet from verified accounts for public figures including billionaire Bill Gates and Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Reuters recounts.
