US Senator Wants “Answers” From Twitter… Which Is Bad News If You’re Elon Musk

I think it’s safe to say that Elon Musk has a lot to worry about at the moment. And the list keeps growing. The latest item that is on the list is Senator Ed Markey has sent a letter to Elon Musk which he has also posted to his website demanding answers about the Twitter Blue fiasco:

“Apparently, due to Twitter’s lax verification practices and apparent need for cash, anyone could pay $8.00 and impersonate someone on your platform. Selling the truth is dangerous and unacceptable. Twitter must explain how this happened and how it will prevent it from happening again,” wrote Senator Markey in his letter to Musk.

Now Elon can try to ignore this. But that would not be a good idea as all that will likely result is him being hauled in front of Congress where he will have to answer questions. And trying to blow that off will not end well for him. Thus I hope for his sake that Elon is drafting answers for Senator Markey that are comprehensive and detailed. Otherwise it’s not going to end well for him.

Oh yeah, I’m calling it now that the EU is going be knocking on Musk’s door in the next few days asking for similar answers. And that’s going to be even less fun for Musk when that happens.
