Well, he did it. Elon kept his promise, and he released the “Twitter Files,” which basically amounts to the behind-the-scenes emails from inside Twitter about the censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop, which was, without a shadow of a doubt, election interference. Elon says that this is just “part one,” and that there is more to come. We also found out that the DNC and Twitter worked together to silence big names on the platform like James Woods, dreaming up excuses to ban them or lock their accounts.
This is the stuff Elon was “allowed” to find. Imagine all the stuff he can’t see that went on in that communist hellhole…
CNN reported on the release of the Twitter Files:
For days, Twitter owner Elon Musk had teased a massive bombshell disclosure based on internal company documents that he claimed would reveal “what really happened” inside Twitter when it decided to temporarily suppress a 2020 New York Post story about Hunter Biden and his laptop.
But on Friday, instead of releasing a trove of documents to the public, Musk’s big reveal pointed to a series of tweets by the journalist Matt Taibbi, who had been provided with emails that largely corroborated what was already known about the incident.
Attracting thousands of retweets, Taibbi’s winding tweet thread reaffirmed how, in the initial hours after the Post story went live, Twitter employees grappled with fears that it could have been the result of a Russian hacking operation.
It showed employees on Twitter’s legal, policy and communications teams debating – and at times disagreeing – over whether to restrict the article under the company’s hacked materials policy, weeks before the 2020 election, where Joe Biden, Hunter Biden’s father, ran against then-President Donald Trump.
While some questioned the basis for the decision and warned that Twitter would be inviting allegations of anti-conservative bias, others within the company, including senior officials, said the circumstances surrounding the Post story were unclear and recommended caution, according to screenshots of internal communications shared by Taibbi.
(Then-CEO Jack Dorsey – whom Taibbi said was not involved in the decision – has told US lawmakers that in hindsight, suppressing the story was a mistake.)
The emails Taibbi obtained are consistent with what former Twitter site integrity head Yoel Roth told journalist Kara Swisher in an onstage interview earlier this week. During that interview, Roth said he felt at the time that the Post reporting bore the hallmarks of a Russian hack-and-leak operation, an assessment that was shared at the time by dozens of former US intelligence officials. Roth did not respond to CNN’s request for comment.
Here’s what Tucker had to say about the Twitter Files.

Now, if that was not bad enough, we also found out that the DNC allegedly helped boot Oscar-nominee James Woods off the platform for his right-leaning views.
Here’s what James said to Tucker: “I will be getting a lawyer. I will be suing the Democratic National Committee, no matter what. Whether I win or lose, I am going to stand up for the rights of every American, not a so-called celebrity, I’m not a celebrity anymore. I’m hardly recognizable anymore because my career has been destroyed by these very people. And I will sue and I’m hoping other people will sue. And if it turns out there are a lot of us on this list where the DNC targeted us, and I will quote the immortal words of Joseph Wells when he attacked Joe McCarthy for the enemy’s list he had, at long last sir, have you no shame? President Biden, all of your Stasi little operatives in the DNC who have targeted American citizens, have you, Mr. President, have all of you at last, no shame?”
James Woods is back on Twitter, after dealing with slews of “bans” over the past several years. But if you’re a progressive in Hollywood, you can do pretty much what you want, and you’ll rarely get called out for it.
I guess now we have proof positive of why that was happening.
