Twitter has suffered a breach that enables users to upload content with copyright licenses.
The last few weeks on Twitter are being a real roller coaster. Behind the acquisition by Elon Musk, the social network has been involved in a whirlwind of controversy that seems to have no end. One of the most controversial measures of the tycoon has been lay off thousands of workers and get rid of much of the template in a matter of days.
Musk then established a series of new normals that they put in long work daysinviting anyone who did not agree with the new drift of the project to resign. Many left work voluntarily under those conditions.
Now, with a very tight squad unable to cope in many aspects, Musk a new crisis has come upon him. Twitter has experienced a serious failure in your copyrighted content restriction system, and users have noticed. Without the means to solve the problem, Twitter has seen how hundreds of users began to share licensed content to the point of post full movies in a single tweet.
Anarchy reigns on Twitter with hundreds of tweets exploiting licensed content
The most notorious case was that of a user who published a thread of 49 tweets where anyone could see Full Throttle : Tokyo Drift in 2 minute videos. The tweet went so viral that the security team Could you disable it manually?, but there are still thousands of examples of copyrighted content roaming freely on Musk’s social network. An example that has made us particularly amused is that of this user, who has shared the introduction of Morbius, the Marvel movie, in a single GIF.

The only way Twitter can take action right now against this content is through user complaints and manual reviews. Taking into account the number of accounts on Twitter and how depleted the workforce is, It is a titanic and endless job with current human resources.
The problem with Twitter is that now, as the template is, the necessary resources do not exist to solve the problem. There were serious glitches in the two-step verification system recently, and just when that seemed to have been fixed there is a much bigger problem and much more difficult to solve. Musk has announced that He plans to lay off a lot more people. to renew the team, the problem is that the number of people who leave the ship is much higher than those who join the team.
