Twitter CEO Elon Musk tweeted out a message Friday mocking senators who want to investigate the company now that he’s in charge.
On Thursday, seven Democrats wrote a letter to the FTC that reads: “We are writing about Twitter’s serious, willful disregard for the safety and security of its users, and are calling on the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to investigate any violations of Twitter’s consent decree or other violations of our consumer laws .”
Musk responded on Friday by calling the mess around the crypto giant FTX after it filed for bankruptcy after losing a billion dollars.
Musk tweeted a wildlife photo of two animals apparently in a sexual act in the background with the message: “FTX loses over a billion dollars of client funds.”[ads1]; In the foreground is a photographer facing the other direction while taking a picture. That text reads: “Senators Ask FTC to Investigate Twitter.”

Syndicated talk show host Joe Pags Pagliarulo responded on Twitter by linking the move to the White House: “a. of course they have comments on what the FTC does or doesn’t do. b. This ‘not going to comment’ means they agree.”
The letter from Senate Democrats warned: “We fear that Mr. Musk’s reported changes to internal assessments and data security practices further endanger consumers and may directly violate the requirements of the consent decree.”
