Here’s Just a little more evidence that Americans should never use Twitter.
On Tuesday, a Twitter official was convicted after being caught spying on Americans and funneling money from the Saudi Arabian government.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) indicted Abouammo, along with two others, on July 28, 2020, for using his position at Twitter to acquire information about Twitter users, which he then handed to the Saudi Royal Family, in exchange for hundreds of thousands of dollars, the indictment claims.
The jury found Abouammo guilty of acting as an unregistered agent of the Saudi government, but excused him from the charges he shared with fellow Twitter employee Ali Alzabarah, who is charged with continuing the scheme after Abouammo left Twitter in May 2015.
Dailycaller.com reports: “They paid for a mole,” said prosecutor Eric Cheng in last week’s closing arguments, noting that Abouammo was paid in bribes three times his salary, according to The Wall Street Journal. “We all know that kind of money is not for nothing.”
