Twitter takes ‘as a joke’ account of the user on

One or more employees of Twitter has this week ‘as a joke’ the account of a user taken asked. That reports TechCrunch.

It goes to the account of Matt Navarra, an expert in the field of social media regularly the existence of the new features on Twitter discovered and to the outside.

Navarre early on Monday or someone’s Twitter account for a day, wanted to take over. The official @Twitter account had responded then, after the temporary acquisition was arranged.

The Twitter user has shared a code with which the Twitter employee on his profile could log in. That placed from Tuesday tweets on his account, inter alia, a suggestive message that Navarra’s private messages were read.

Navarre claims that he all of his private messages has to be deleted before the Twitter employee had access to his account. However, the temporary administrator of his account screenshots that show was that he had access to calls.

A number of followers of Navarre says the temporary takeover of a fun joke to have found. Others, such as Jane Manchun Wong, who, like Navarra a regular basis as new features are discovered, spoke out against the action.

“I feel uncomfortable with the fact that @Twitter has access to my conversation with Matt Navarra,” writes Wong on the social medium. “This is a violation of privacy.”
