Twitter Bug Bounty Contest, Win Prizes up to $3500, How To Participate


Twitter Bug Bounty Contest: The micro-blogging platform Twitter has started a bug bounty contest to improve its platform further and detect bugs. The company will give a maximum reward of $ 3,500 (about Rs 2,60,327). The main objective of this contest is to find out any flaw in Twitter’s algorithm by security researchers.

Twitter Bug Bounty Contest

Rumman Choudhury, director of software engineering at Twitter, said that in May, we made our algorithms (also known as our image cropping algorithms) public to identify any glitches, and we took our work to the next level. We made your code available for others to reproduce. “We want to make this work a step further by inviting and encouraging the community to help identify the potential pitfalls of this algorithm,” Choudhary said.

According to Choudhary, he is inspired by how research and the hacker community have helped the security sector establish best practices to identify and mitigate vulnerabilities to protect the public. He further said that we want to create such a community that focuses on machine learning and can help us identify errors.


The winner of the bug bounty contest will get this much reward.

The main objective of this contest is to reduce the hassle. Twitter said in its blog post that we want you to bring to the fore the damages affecting anyone from Twitter users to customers or Twitter itself. The winners of this bug bounty contest will be named in a workshop organised by Twitter on 8th August. The winning team will be given a cash prize by HackerOne, which will be as follows.

  1. $3,500 for the first winner
  2. $ 1,000 for the second winner
  3. $ 500 for the third winner – $1,000 for the most innovative winner
  4. $1,000 for the most generalised (this applies to all types of algorithms)

Those participating in this challenge can participate till 11:59 pm on August 6, 2021.
