Elon Musk confirmed on Wednesday that Twitter has interfered with elections.
In response to a report from Reuters about Twitter’s move to free speech under Musk, he replied that “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.”
Exactly. 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.

This is a stunning admission.
It was only a few days ago that Musk made the announcement that “The Twitter Files on free speech suppression, soon to be published on Twitter itself. The public deserves to know what really happened…” \

It has long been believed that Twitter interfered in the 2020 general presidential election in the US by suppressing and censoring the New York Post’s bombshell report on revelations of shady international business dealings and influence peddling gleaned from Hunter Biden’s laptop.
Musk vowed to make public the internal conversations had at Twitter in 2020 regarding that censorship, which polling later showed did have an effect on the election, as voters said they may not have voted for Joe Biden had they known about the reports of influence peddling in the Biden family. This reporting has been verified by establishment media in recent weeks.
The EU tried this with Gab, earlier.
But, from the number of gabs I see there from Europeans everyday, it looks like the EU is a paper tiger when it comes to enforcement.
Twitter will probably get the same; a harshly worded letter followed by nada.
And the FBI inserted itself into the business of Congress. Congress has a duty to investigate any threat to the U.S. Constitution. The 2020 election provided ample irregularities for Congress to conduct an investigation. The events of January 6 were an orchestrated operation to deny the Congress its Constitutional obligation to investigate a potential threat to the U.S. Constitution.
Had January 6 FBI insurrection not occurred, it is likely several state’s electoral votes may have been placed on hold pending investigations by those respective states who made requests to pence.
