Twitter whistleblower who walked out on Twitter could testify in case of CEO Elon Musk

A report about a second whistleblower is coming into the picture as Elon Musk faces Twitter Inc. TWTR in court over his $44 billion acquisition bid.

What Happened: After Peiter Zatko, a second Twitter whistleblower may testify when the case comes up for trial in about two weeks, the New York Post said in a report.

The new whistleblower could talk about an alleged internal study showing that Twitter's bot problem is far more serious than the social media platform has publicly acknowledged, despite the fact that Zatko focused mostly on security flaws.

According to the internal study, at least 30% of Twitter's daily active users were spam accounts. The new whistleblower said that Twitter executives dismissed the report, saying, "We have always had a bot problem." Why It is Important: Musk s main premise for walking out on Twitter was his disagreement over the bot account count that the social media platform publicly disclosed.

If the report is true, the rumored second whistleblower's testimony could be a shot in the arm for the Tesla CEO.

Musk will answer questions from Twitter s lawyers under oath on Thursday and Friday before the lawsuit comes up for a five-day trial beginning October 17.

According to Benzinga Pro data, the price action of Twitter was down 2.97% to $42.54 on Monday.
