Mexican drug cartels are openly operating on Twitter, according to a new study which reveals that Elon Musk’s reduced safety oversight has allowed them to flaunt their lifestyles, post violent content and recruit new members.
Retired FBI agent Arturo Fonte commented on the issue, saying that the accounts are not secret and openly display criminal activity.
While many wonder how this is allowed to happen, Fonte explains that it is not new, as such accounts have been around since 2004 or 2005.
He also adds that these websites are trying to recruit people between the ages of 14 to 22, including high school kids who are easily motivated.
This news has sparked concerns over the safety and regulation of social media platforms.
