In an attempt to control the opposition, Saudi Arabia has to use dodgy tools. The New York Times has sources claiming that the country used a Twitter employee to gain access to users on the social network.

Twitter engineer Ali Alzabarah, according to sources, has spied on dissidents and other goals.

Could not continue
By 2015, Twitter was notified of the alleged espionage, and behind the warning were allegedly Western security experts.

Ali Alzabarahs was shortly authorized by Twitter, suspected of spying on several users on behalf of Saudi Arabia.

Twitter's investigation of the case, however, became ineffective. They could not find traces that supported the accusation of espionage. Nevertheless, the Twitter employee was discontinued in December 2015.

These should have been spied on
In the wake of the investigation, Twitter contacted users who may have been the victim of espionage. These were both activists, specialists in surveillance, academics, journalists, and researchers in the field of IT.

Neither Twitter, Ali Alzabarah nor Saudi Arabia will comment on the matter, according to the New York Times.

Five sources aware of the case claim that Alzabarah is now working for the Saudi Arab regime.
