Online leak of fragments of its computer code, Twitter has initiated legal action. The code is crucial to the platform’s operation.

According to court filings cited by CNBC, Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR) has initiated legal proceedings after portions of the social media site’s computer code were leaked online.

On March 24, 2023, Twitter issued a subpoena to the software collaboration platform GitHub, requesting information regarding the user, “FreeSpeechEnthusiast,” who shared excerpts of the source code without authorization.

The filings state that Twitter’s purpose in issuing the subpoena is to identify the individual responsible for sharing the code.

GitHub complied with the request and removed the code on the same day, in accordance with DMCA takedown rules. Elon Musk’s takeover of the company in 2022 has been mired in controversy, but he has previously stated that Twitter will make the code used to recommend tweets publicly available on March 31.

The move towards transparency is expected to uncover initial issues, which Musk has described as “silly” and “incredibly embarrassing.”
