Elon Musk’s ‘Twitter Files’ expose censorship and information suppression at Twitter.

On Friday, Twitter CEO Elon Musk disclosed the internal ‘Twitter Files,’ which revealed that the firm replied to a request “from the Biden camp” during the 2020 race, only days after the company cracked down on Hunter Biden, son of US President Joe Biden, over his laptop tale.
Musk posted a link to the account of independent journalist and novelist Matt Taibbi, who launched a series of tweets disclosing the inside reason of the decision to conceal Hunter Biden’s laptop tale. Taibbi tweeted, “Part One of the Twitter Files: How and Why Twitter Blocked the Hunter Biden Laptop Story.”
“On October 14, 2020, the New York Post will publish BIDEN SECRET EMAILS, an exposé based on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop,” he explained.
According to Taibbi, Facebook “made unusual steps to conceal” The New York Post’s Hunter Biden laptop article, including blocking links and putting warnings that it may be “unsafe.” “They even prevented its delivery through direct message, a feature formerly reserved for grave instances, such as child pornography,” he tweeted. The article went on to say, “Although multiple people claimed to have heard of a “general” warning from federal law enforcement that summer about probable foreign hacking, I’ve found no evidence of any government participation in the laptop narrative. In reality, that may have been the issue…”
“The decision was taken at the top levels of the corporation, but without the knowledge of CEO Jack Dorsey,” he continued.
One Twitter employee referred to the decision to delete the item as “cruel.” “They simply freelanced it,” Taibbi added, citing one employee who claimed hacking was the reason, but after a few hours, almost everyone knew that wasn’t going to work. However, no one had the courage to reverse it.
Taibbi captions the photo on Twitter, “You can see the uncertainty in the following lengthy conversation, which ends up incorporating Gadde and former Trust and safety chief Yoel Roth.” Trenton Kennedy, a communications official, says, “I’m failing to comprehend the policy rationale for labelling this as dangerous.”
Taibbi also tweeted an image labelling the NYPost’s Hunter Biden Laptop Article as “PRIVILEGED AND CONFIDENTIAL,” with the caption, “our teams continue to examine the sources of the material included in the article.”
Trenton Kennedy, a Twitter user, said, “I’m struggling to understand the policy reason for designating this as hazardous, and I think the best external explainability rationale for this would be that we’re waiting to determine if this article is the product of hacked materials.” We’ll face tough questions if we don’t have a compelling rationale for labelling the connection dangerous.
