Sounds like the UK and US agreed on a WhatsApp backdoor:
@fribbledom One might ask how is it possible for Whatsapp to share messages that should be encrypted...
@fribbledom Not a chance--while that might be legal in the UK, it is not in the US. The reference to backdoors is only part of the intel community's propaganda war to weaken encryption. The cooperation refers to metadata and the like, not encrypted data.
@fribbledom seems like this is Bloomberg just outright lying again... https://twitter.com/mmasnick/status/1177979730932297728
@fribbledom not a Facebook fan but Bloomberg has a history of “interesting” tech reportage (eg their Big Hack story). Now Alex Stamos on Twitter is also pushing back on this story.
