The madman actually did it. With journalist Matt Taibbi as his vehicle, Elon begins a new era of transparency at Twitter by releasing internal communications relevant to the censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop story in the critical months leading up to the 2020 Presidential election.

The released documents show how government actors on both sides could use backchannels to Twitter in order to have political enemies punished.

While such requests came from both sides, Taibbi is quick to point out that the political slant at Twitter is overwhelmingly weighted toward Dems (what a surprise!).

Now for the moment we’ve all been waiting for, the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story:

Twitter used its dubious “hacked materials” policy to justify censorship of the Hunter story — there was no evidence whatsoever that the story came out as a result of a hack.

The decision was made at the highest levels, by recently departed commissar Vijaya Gadde running the show. The incredible thing is that the nominal CEO Jack Dorsey was not even part of the process.

Take a look at the following private exchange, including newly departed Trust and Safety head Yoel Roth (the same guy who wrote to the New York Times essentially urging Apple to deplatform Elon’s Twitter from the App Store):

Internal communications show Twitter employees understood there was no way to truthfully maintain that the Hunter Biden story was hacked. They knew it was a lie and stayed the course anyway.

The released comms from Twitter reveal former CEO Jack Dorsey to be a free speech advocate who simply lost control of his company. And we see further evidence the “hacked materials” excuse was a complete sham.
