Sounds like the UK and US agreed on a WhatsApp backdoor:
@fribbledom I know why I use Signal and Wire.
@fribbledom only "social" media i use is whatsapp, and every convs. i had is on it. So i guess i just have to swallow what it offers.
@fribbledom One might ask how is it possible for Whatsapp to share messages that should be encrypted...
One should, indeed...
@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 happy without it since 5 years...or is it more? 🤔😅
@fribbledom seems like this is Bloomberg just outright lying again... https://twitter.com/mmasnick/status/1177979730932297728
@fribbledom This is some Five Eyes complete rubbish.
@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.
