If you’re in the habit of sending your nude pics via DM, chances are, a Twitter staff somewhere has seen your nude photo.
Some Twitter employees exposed top-secret details about their jobs as seen in a video released by investigative journalist group, Project Veritas. It was revealed that hundreds of employees are dedicated and paid to look at “dck pics” posted by Twitter users in their DMs.
Senior Network Security Engineer Clay Haynes is heard in the footage captured January 6 speaking openly about how he is paid to access and analyze users’ personal information – which includes browsing through hundreds of obscene pictures and messages.
“There’s teams dedicated to it. I mean, we’re talking, we’re talking three or four… at least, three or four hundred people… Yes, they’re paid to look at d**k pics,” Haynes revealed in the shocking video.
Haynes said he specifically analyzes tweets and messages that have been flagged or reported.
He added: “I get to look at all of the reported tweets. Which means I have seen alot of d*ck pics. It’s ridiculous. I mean… it’s like a level… I don’t want to say it freaks me out, but it disturbs me.”
Haynes also said that he even has to power to leak sensitive information if need be.
“It’s a genie out of the bottle kind of thing after that point. Sure, I can fire them, heck, I could probably even sue them in some cases,” Haynes said.
While speaking to reporters, Direct Messaging Engineer Pranay Singh said everything they ever sent on Twitter is stored on his server – and will never go away.
Singh said: “All of your illegitimate wives and all the girls you’ve been f**king around with, they are on my sever now. They never go away, they are always on there. Even after you send them, people are analyzing them to see what you’re interested in, to see what you’re talking about, and they sell that data to advertisers.”
And, since Twitter is free, another software engineer, Mihai Florea, said users are basically “paying for the right” to use the website with their own data, Daily Mail reports.
Former software engineer Conrado Miranda added: “You leak way more information than you think. We have information from people… like, if you go to Twitter for the first time, we have information about you.”
