Elon Musk Teases First Taste from ‘The Twitter Files’ — It is Sending the Left Into a Full-Blown Frenzy

    Elon Musk has outed his new company Twitter as being guilty of having committed election interference.

    The billionaire tech CEO replied to a Reuters report that accused Twitter of being “less safe” under Musk.

    The Reuters report cites the former head of trust and safety, whom Elon Musk fired, accusing Twitter of being short-staffed to conduct so-called “safety work.”

    “Yoel Roth on Tuesday said the social media company was not safer under new owner Elon Musk, warning in his first interview since resigning this month that the company no longer had enough staff for safety work,” Reuters reported.

    Reuters did not mention any conflict of interest in its report, which violates its own journalistic standards. Instead, Reuters engaged in open advocacy for the “trust and safety” team’s narrative.

    In response to the report, Musk replied: “The obvious reality, as long-time users know, is that Twitter has failed in trust & safety for a very long time and has interfered in elections. Twitter 2.0 will be far more effective, transparent and even-handed.”

    “Twitter has shown itself to be not safe for the past 10 years and has lost users’ trust,” user @EvaFoxU remarked. “The past team of ‘trust and safety’ is a disgrace, so it doesn’t have any right to judge what is being done now. They had a chance, but they sold their souls to a corporation.”

    “Exactly,” Musk replied. “The obvious reality, as long-time users know, is that Twitter has failed in trust & safety for a very long time and has interfered in elections. Twitter 2.0 will be far more effective, transparent and even-handed.”

    Musk recently made the enticing announcement that he was set to release The Twitter Files on free speech suppression.

    “The Twitter Files on free speech suppression soon to be published on Twitter itself. The public deserves to know what really happened …”

    Elon Musk recently fired another shot by ending the ‘Covid misinformation’ policies that resulted in the banning of thousands of users.

    Twitter did not formally announce the rule change, but users instead spotted the note added to Twitter’s website that outlines its Covid policy.

    “Effective November 23, 2022, Twitter is no longer enforcing the COVID-19 misleading information policy,” the note read.

    The European Union is reacting to Elon Musk’s Twitter moves by threatening to ban the platform unless it complies with the EU’s rules on moderating political speech.

    As reported by the Financial Times, EU industry chief Thierry Breton made the threat during a video meeting with Musk on Wednesday. Breton told Musk “there is still huge work ahead” to bring the platform in compliance with Brussels’ rules.

    The EU is not the only giant that Musk has riled recently. On Monday, Musk revealed that Apple is threatening to remove Twitter from its App Store.

    “Apple has also threatened to withhold Twitter from its App Store, but won’t tell us why,” Musk said.

    Shem Horne points out that the threat is unlikely to be about Musk’s recent restoration of former President Donald Trump’s account.

    “Truth Social is allowed on their App Store, which means it isn’t about President Trump or content moderation,” Horne said. “It’s about trying to bring you under control and make you submit to the lefts demands like the previous owners of Twitter did.”

    Musk earlier said that Apple had all-but-stopped advertising on Twitter.

    “Apple has mostly stopped advertising on Twitter,” Musk said. “Do they hate free speech in America?”

    What’s going on here @tim_cook?” he added, referring to Apple CEO Tim Cook.

    In another sign of escalation, Elon Musk agreed that a parody of a famous 1984-themed ad from Apple was “accurate.”

    Apple CEO Tim Cook is flying to Washington to meet with Republican leaders over the company’s threats against Twitter.

    There is no credible data to support that there has been a recent uptick in “hate speech” on Twitter. As Elon Musk recently pointed out, the metrics that Twitter used to track such alleged “hate speech” are down by one-third after his takeover.
