    ‘By 2020, requests from connected actors to delete tweets were routine. One executive would write to another: ‘More to review from the Biden team.’ The reply would come back: ‘Handled.”‘

    Newly-minted Twitter owner Elon Musk on Friday honored his promise to release the so-called “Twitter files,” internal records revealing the big tech platform’s censorship practices and the backstory behind the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story just ahead of the 2020 presidential election.

    The information was made public in a slow-rolled Twitter thread written by Matt Taibbi and linked by Musk.

    According to the thread, Twitter’s “staff and executives” utilized tools to curb speech at the behest of “[o]utsiders” who “began petitioning the company to manipulate speech as well: first a little, then more often, then constantly.”

    “By 2020, requests from connected actors to delete tweets were routine. One executive would write to another: ‘More to review from the Biden team.’ The reply would come back: ‘Handled,’” Taibbi wrote.

    Taibbi posted a screenshot from an email thread between Twitter employees in October 2020, just weeks before the massively controversial presidential election, which was tainted by the infamous social media censorship of the New York Post‘s blockbuster report about the scandalous contents of a laptop belonging to Joe Biden’s son Hunter.

    “Celebrities and unknowns alike could be removed or reviewed at the behest of a political party,” Taibbi continuedadding that while both Republicans and Democrats “had access to these tools” (he said that “in 2020, requests from both the Trump White House and the Biden campaign were received and honored”) the “system wasn’t balanced.”

    “It was based on contacts. Because Twitter was and is overwhelmingly staffed by people of one political orientation, there were more channels, more ways to complain, open to the left (well, Democrats) than the right,” Taibbi said, confirming conservatives’ longtime suspicions that right-wing voices and entities are more regularly targeted on social media than their left-wing counterparts.

    Taibbi then jumped into the story about Twitter’s involvement in suppressing the Hunter Biden laptop story.
