Here’s a great tweet from Elon Musk that shouldn’t even have to be said:
Suspending the Twitter account of a major news organization for publishing a truthful story was obviously incredibly inappropriate
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 26, 2022
The New York Post was locked out of its account for several weeks because it refused to delete its scoop on Hunter Biden’s laptop, which was obviously Russian disinformation that the public had to be protected from. One Twitter engineer (at least that’s what his bio says) still denies to this day that what Twitter did with the New York Post’s story wasn’t targeted censorship, but just an unbiased application of Twitter’s hacked materials policy. Then why does Twitter to this day allow, say, Pro Publica to publish its “secret trove of IRS data” to post the tax returns of private citizens?
Oh hey, his tweet’s been deleted after about 1,000 comments within 25 minutes:
They’re STILL lying about it pic.twitter.com/js8Yc2859F

See, except the information that came from the laptop, didn't come from hacked documents, it came via the store owner, after he took ownership of the laptop, once it was abandoned by Hunter Biden.
But ya'll knew that when you suspended the NY Post. https://t.co/HJhXOgBwCq

Did he share at least one case where they applied the policy equally?

How come it only negatively affected Republicans?

Calling your boss a liar isn’t good for one’s career.

That is a provable lie.

It wasn’t hacked, was it? Wasn’t it abandoned?

It was not hacked.

They didn't censor "the hacked documents" of Trump's tax return.

Nothing was hacked.
The lies will never stop.

Hacked? Is that what it's called when a laptop is handed over to a third party by the owner?

Completely incompetent or delusional

That’s a good question: Does he actually believe that the laptop story was suppressed because of Twitter’s “hacked materials” policy, or is he just flat-out lying?
