After some of Twitter’s source code was recently leaked online, Twitter took action on Friday, sending a copyright infringement notice to GitHub, the code hosting platform that published its source code, demanding that the leaked code be removed. Twitter also asked the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California to order GitHub to identify the person who shared the code, as well as anyone else who downloaded it.
According to new reports, a California federal court has granted GitHub a subpoena in connection with the leak of Twitter source code on Microsoft’s code hosting platform GitHub, which has until April 3 to provide personally identifiable information related to the FreeSpeechEnthusiast account. The “FreeSpeechEnthusiast” previously posted “various excerpts” of Twitter’s source code on GitHub, without Twitter’s authorization.
Elon Musk promised to make the source code of the tweet public last month, but it hasn’t really been made public yet.
