I already discussed it on Twitter with others how he write access admin app doesn't enforce 2/MFA, 4+ eye principle, remote action verification/authorization and so on. I mean even my side project uses 2FA and enforces it for admin users (me). And where are the notification mails that a twitter employee changed anything in my account?
At the end the only to blame is the Twitter security department for failing with the simplest measurements to secure the admin dashboard ... 🤯

I’m really curious how detailed a final report on this from Twitter will be. Considering how embarassing it is for them, I don’t have high hopes.
