Per the article,

“That consent decree was put into place in May after Twitter was found to be using users' data to target ads. That data — phone numbers and email addresses — was supposedly being collected in the name of security. The FTC said at the time that the move violated another consent decree from 2011.”

The decrees were put in place before Musk’s purchase of the company and they were allegedly put in place because Twitter was found to be using users’ data to target ads and the phone numbers and email addresses were being collected in the name of security.

I’m going to “assume” Musk’s experimental features compiles user data for the purpose of ad targeting. If not, what’s the problem?
