Twitter alternative Spoutible clashes with critics over security breach | TechCrunch
Briefly

A user on Spoutible alleges that their posts were deleted after they pressed the CEO to be more transparent about the security incident. Spoutible denies these claims.
The claims, which the company denies, are the latest bizarre twist in the security incident saga taking place over the past week at the startup.
Troy Hunt, the creator of Have I Been Pwned, discovered that Spoutible's API exposed user data, including bcrypt hashed passwords and 2FA secrets. The vulnerability could have allowed bad actors to take over user accounts without their knowledge.
Hunt had been alerted to this issue by a third party who claimed they had scraped data from Spoutible's service.
