Elon Musk has acquired Twitter for $44 billion and he is planning to make Twitter a private company. Musk plans to open-source the algorithms behind Twitter and experts say this could potentially be harmful for privacy.

If any vulnerability is found, that could lead to leaks and privacy concerns in the future.

Apple has dropped out of the State Privacy and Security Coalition (SPSC) after expressing concerns that the trade group pushed legislation that would not adequately protect user data.
The SPSC bills itself as "a coalition of major Internet, communications, retail, and media companies that works for robust and consistency data security, breach notice, privacy and consumer protection regulation," according to a letter the group penned to the Federal Trade Commission in 2016. And, apparently, Apple has left the group because the company felt that the group was not doing enough to protect consumers’ privacy.
