Twitter officials on Wednesday disputed a whistleblower’s allegations that the social media company violated rules and laws, endangering users’ personal data.

Twitter executive Jay Sullivan, testifying before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, discredited the allegations of Peiter “Mudge” Zatko, formerly the company’s top security official.

“The company disagrees with much of the allegations, now it’s connected to an ongoing lawsuit,” Mr. Sullivan said.Mr. Zatko told lawmakers this week that Twitter leadership has misled the public, federal agencies, and its own board.

Sen. Jon Ossoff, Georgia Democrat, pressed Mr. Sullivan to answer whether his company misled the Federal Trade Commission in particular, and the Twitter executive responded that the company disputes Mr. Zatko’s allegations.    

Mr. Zatko also told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday that Twitter ignored a warning about insider threats, and he learned that the company was penetrated by foreign spies from India and China working for the platform.
