Elon Musk launched bombshell information on Friday evening over Twitter’s censorship of The New York Submit’s October 2020 article about Hunter Biden.
Musk linked to a thread of tweets, being referred to as “The Twitter Recordsdata,” curated by impartial journalist Matt Taibbi on his Twitter account, writing “Right here we go!!” with two popcorn emojis.
Taibbi’s thread revealed a sequence of communications inside Twitter’s management on the time, and even involving authorities officers.
“‘They only freelanced it,’ is how one former worker characterised the choice” to censor the Hunter Biden laptop computer story,” Taibbi wrote.
“Hacking was the excuse, however inside just a few hours, just about everybody realized that wasn’t going to carry. However nobody had the heart to reverse it,” Taibbi wrote on Twitter.
Since most of the Twitter workers concerned within the censorship are now not with the social media platform, the query stays whether or not there shall be accountability for the previous workers’ actions.
