Twitter Hackers Ridiculed as ‘Low IQ,’ but Implications Remain Serious
Despite being criticized by some for having a “super low IQ,” the hackers behind last night’s Twitter attack may have accomplished something with far more serious implications than mere financial gain.

Meta’s Rush to Topple Twitter Sets Up Looming Privacy Debate part 1
Meta’s Rush to Topple Twitter Sets Up Looming Privacy Debate
GDPR is halting Meta’s new Threads app from entering EU markets, portending a broader struggle over the right ways to collect user data on social apps.
Upcoming data privacy regulations are preventing Meta’s new microblogging app “Threads” from launching in European Union (EU) markets. Experts say this is only the beginning of the privacy battle facing the Twitter clone.
Meta’s attempted coup d’etat against the Twitter kingdom launched on Wednesday in over 100 countries, earning tens of millions of users in only its first day live. That, despite being unavailable to major markets within the EU.
The holdup has to do with “complexities with complying with some of the laws coming into effect next year,” Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri hinted on July 5. Mosseri’s statement may refer to the new antitrust-oriented Digital Markets Act, but experts also expect Threads to collide head-on with consumer privacy regulations, thanks to its wanton collection of just about every kind of personal data imaginable.
“It seems likely that they’re worried about the risk of rolling out something new that very clearly violates General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) guidelines,” says Aaron Mendes, CEO and co-founder of PrivacyHawk. But Threads’ slow rollout doesn’t preclude it from flourishing in the future. “Facebook has a reputation of rolling things out over time — they like to get stuff out fast, and then get information in and iterate.”
