Senate Democrats demand the FTC launches investigation into Elon Musk’s Twitter

Several Democrat senators, including Elizabeth Warren and Richard Blumenthal, sent a letter to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) asking it to investigate the changes made by Elon Musk to Twitter.

The senators said that the changes are “alarming.”

“Twitter’s new Chief Executive Officer, Elon Musk, has taken alarming steps that have undermined the integrity and safety of the platform, and announced new features despite clear warnings those changes would be abused for fraud, scams, and dangerous impersonation. According to media reports, in prioritizing increasing profits and cutting costs, Twitter’s executives have dismissed key staff, scaled back internal privacy reviews, and forced engineers to take on legal liability for new changes — preventing managers and staff tasked with overseeing safety and legal compliance from reviewing the product updates,” the senators wrote in the letter.
