Twitter Files: Everything you need to know about Elon Musk’s  latest revelations

Canada Global (Web News) Journalist Matt Taibbi said in a tweet on Friday that the “Twitter Files,” which Elon Musk has been teasering since Monday, exposed the social media platform’s restriction of free speech.

In his very dramatic opening tweets, Taibbi, who typed “The Twitter Files” in all caps, stated that the thread would “tell an astonishing story from inside one of the world’s largest and most prominent social media networks.”

The public needs to know what actually occurred, Twitter CEO Musk stated in a tweet on Monday. On Friday, Musk promoted the lengthy thread by writing, “Here we go!!,” along with two popcorn emojis.

The discussion documented the company’s request to ban a 2020 New York Post article regarding Hunter Biden just before the presidential election. It was replete with excerpts and screenshots that Taibbi referred to as “internal documentation.”

Several of the snippets showed Twitter executives scrambling to make a difficult moderation choice regarding the New York Post post, which Taibbi called “extraordinary steps to bury the story.”

The New York Post claimed on October 14, 2020, that it had obtained emails showing that Hunter Biden had introduced his father, vice president Joe Biden, to “a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company.”

According to NBC News, Twitter’s regulations forbid the dissemination of “hacked materials,” and it stopped the story citing the pertinent guideline as one of its justifications, proving that the content was not the issue.

Emails from unidentified members of the Biden administration asking Twitter to take action against certain posts were also included in the screenshots.
