The latest internal communications released by new Twitter owner Elon Musk show the FBI had regular contact with the social media giant, proposing bans on users, including actor Billy Baldwin and satirical accounts.
“Twitter’s contact with the FBI was constant and pervasive, as if it were a subsidiary,” wrote journalist Matt Taibbi in a thread Friday afternoon.
He said that between January 2020 and November 2022, there were more than 150 emails between the FBI and former Twitter Trust and Safety chief Yoel Roth.
“But a surprisingly high number are requests by the FBI for Twitter to take action on election misinformation, even involving joke tweets from low-follower accounts,” he said.
On Nov. 6 – two days before the midterm elections – FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Elvis Chan forwarded to Twitter staff a long list of accounts that, according to the bureau, were “disseminating false information about the time, place or manner of the upcoming elections.”
Baldwin and a number of satirical accounts were on the list, but they were not suspended after a review.
1. THREAD: The Twitter Files, Part Six
TWITTER, THE FBI SUBSIDIARY
— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 16, 2022
Internal Twitter communications previously released by Musk – dubbed the “Twitter Files” – show Joe Biden’s president campaign had a direct line to the social media giant to censor the Hunter laptop story.
And an FBI agent recently testified he was in charge of a “command post” that made direct requests to social media companies to remove “misinformation.”
On Wednesday, Musk hinted he has unearthed messages from Dr. Anthony Fauci’s team urging Twitter to censor anyone who didn’t comply with the federal government’s official narrative on COVID-19 and the vaccines.
Musk was replying to a comment on his provocative tweet Sunday declaring: “My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci.”
The comment to Musk, from the account of the Hodge twins comedy team, was: “Let me guess, You found messages between Twitter execs and our govt. (Fauci and team) pushing for censorship of anyone that didn’t go along with their narrative on Covid?”
Musk replied with a gold trophy icon, indicating they were correct.
EDITOR’S NOTE: The “Climate Change Cult.” The “Anti-Racism Cult.” The “Cult of Wokeness.” The “LGBTQ Cult” and its predatory offspring targeting America’s children, the “Transgender Cult.” The “Cult of Abortion.” The “COVID Cult.” The “Cult of Globalism.” “TikTok Cults.” Every month the list grows.
To right-thinking Americans attempting to make sense of a nation seemingly gone mad, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the irrational, deranged – and often demonic – leftwing political and cultural movements currently capturing the minds of millions of Americans are nothing short of full-fledged cults.
Although the high priesthood of all these leftwing religious cults – i.e., university professors, academics and other Marxist ideologues and activists – may be true believers, the people actually wielding REAL POWER do not believe any of it. To them, these leftwing cults conveniently serve to disguise and distract “the rabble” from what the leader class is REALLY up to, which is the pursuit of ever more power, wealth and glory for themselves, and a total transformation of America and the world.
All of this and much more is explored in a powerful, insightful and absolutely unique way in the latest issue of WND’s acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “HOLY WAR: Defeating the growing cult of leftism and its total war on Christianity.”
