Twitter faces $250 million FTC fine for misusing user data

Twitter revealed on Monday that it may need to pay up to a $250 million fine to the FTC for misusing customer security data for advertising purposes. Twitter stated that it had received a draft complaint from the FTC on July 28. Under a 2011 consent decree, Twitter is barred from misleading customers on how it ’protects the security, privacy and confidentiality of nonpublic consumer information.’

Twitter shouldn't be allowed to stay Twitter. A private company with a monopoly on public speech shouldn't be allowed to exist.

Twitter was always a defect masquerading as a feature. Who could be surprised it would "misuse" information?
