The Twitter Files [Updated]

Dave Rubin this morning took a close look at the mainstream media and the release of the Twitter Files revealing the long and sordid Twitter history of censorship, election meddling, Wuhan Flu obfuscation, and pandemic lying and suppression. His overarching observation is, “We are splitting into two internets.” ***

Splitting? Already in my rearview mirror.

*** At the tail of it all “Silly leftist clowns” at the New York Times are mugged by reality.

UPDATE: The Findings on the Removal of Donald Trump from Twitter

28. Things escalate from there. Members of that team came to “view him as the leader of a terrorist group responsible for violence/deaths comparable to Christchurch shooter or Hitler and on that basis and on the totality of his Tweets, he should be de-platformed.”


29. Two hours later, Twitter executives host a 30-minute all-staff meeting. Jack Dorsey and Vijaya Gadde answer staff questions as to why Trump wasn’t banned yet. But they make some employees angrier.
30. “Multiple tweeps [Twitter employees] have quoted the Banality of Evil suggesting that people implementing our policies are like Nazis following orders,” relays Yoel Roth to a colleague.


31. Dorsey requested simpler language to explain Trump’s suspension. Roth wrote, “god help us [this] makes me think he wants to share it publicly”
32. One hour later, Twitter announces Trump’s permanent suspension “due to the risk of further incitement of violence.”
33. Many at Twitter were ecstatic.




34. And congratulatory: “big props to whoever in trust and safety is sitting there whack-a-mole-ing these trump accounts”


Mob rule. You’ve seen it here. You’ll see it again. Prepare.

    What we have here are snapshots of the past: screenshots, messages, some context. All alarming. All two years past. Much has gone by since then.

    Something in the way Musk is orchestrating the process tells me that the closer we get to now, the more likely we will see a truly significant development.

    Nothing of substance I can point to, but just that “sense” that it’s there. We shall see.

      @Roll-aid : You may be onto something, I have a vague sense of this as well. Musk knows more than we do, and has security in this; some I don’t understand and some I do. The part I don’t know is the Apple deal, where Apple apparently did a 180° on having Twitter on their store. That was weird with no explanation given. The part I do know is the FBI/DOJ won’t interfere, at least with Musk, on national security grounds due to SpaceX’s StarShield partnership with DoD. Not only was it voluntary (and negotiated many months ago) but no other entity is nearly as capable or prepared for this role.

      Nobody’s reporting on the whistleblower complaint (84 page PDF, heavily redacted) filed in July to the SEC by Peiter Zatko, aka Mudge. It alleges many serious federal violations, deliberately misleading Twitter’s board, misleading stockholders, deceiving Musk in his purchase, and cooperating with hostile governments by giving their agents access to Twitter internals. Serious crap. Where TF is the press on this?

      But yes, I get this feeling of ‘something’. LOL.

    Agree somethings just not right. I always wanna puke when Musk tweets or posts “ oddly The FBI seemed to want to do the right thing”. Yea Right!

    With the entirety of what’s gone on the collusion, the suppression of the constitution, their can be only one response. Clearly federal state and local laws have been broken.

    If those responsible, under the color of authority MUST be severely punished, to not do so, will invite this conduct to continue. No accountability, why would they change. Fact is they have no intentions of fixing it.

    Lastly when Obama made laws that allow the Propaganda usage on Americans, we’ll it needs to go away for ever. That a Govt can openly lie, without consequence is criminal, should be treated as criminal.
