The Twitter Files Part 1 Thread - By Matt Taibbi

#1 - 11:34 PM · Dec 2, 2022[1]

1. Thread: THE TWITTER FILES

#2 - 11:39 PM · Dec 2, 2022[2]

2. What you’re about to read is the first installment in a series, based upon thousands of internal documents obtained by sources at Twitter.

#3 - 11:41 PM · Dec 2, 2022[3]

3. The “Twitter Files” tell an incredible story from inside one of the world’s largest and most influential social media platforms. It is a Frankensteinian tale of a human-built mechanism grown out the control of its designer.

#4 - 11:43 PM · Dec 2, 2022[4]

4. Twitter in its conception was a brilliant tool for enabling instant mass communication, making a true real-time global conversation possible for the first time.

#5 - 11:45 PM · Dec 2, 2022[5]

5. In an early conception, Twitter more than lived up to its mission statement, giving people “the power to create and share ideas and information instantly, without barriers.”

#6 - 11:46 PM · Dec 2, 2022[6]

6. As time progressed, however, the company was slowly forced to add those barriers. Some of the first tools for controlling speech were designed to combat the likes of spam and financial fraudsters.

#7 - 11:47 PM · Dec 2, 2022[7]

7. Slowly, over time, Twitter staff and executives began to find more and more uses for these tools. Outsiders began petitioning the company to manipulate speech as well: first a little, then more often, then constantly.

#8 - 11:52 PM · Dec 2, 2022[8]

8. 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.”

#9 - 11:56 PM · Dec 2, 2022[9]

9. Celebrities and unknowns alike could be removed or reviewed at the behest of a political party:
FjAuD6eWAAEFiXY.jpg

#10 - 11:58 PM · Dec 2, 2022[10]

10.Both parties had access to these tools. For instance, in 2020, requests from both the Trump White House and the Biden campaign were received and honored. However:

#11 - 12:02 AM · Dec 3, 2022[11]

11. This 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. https://opensecrets.org/orgs/twitter/summary?id=D000067113

#12 - 12:04 AM · Dec 3, 2022[12]

12. The resulting slant in content moderation decisions is visible in the documents you’re about to read. However, it’s also the assessment of multiple current and former high-level executives.

#13/14/15 - 12:05 AM · Dec 3, 2022[13]

Okay, there was more throat-clearing about the process, but screw it, let's jump forward

#16 - 12:06 AM · Dec 3, 2022[14]

16. The Twitter Files, Part One: How and Why Twitter Blocked the Hunter Biden Laptop Story

#17 - 12:07 AM · Dec 3, 2022[15]

17. On October 14, 2020, the New York Post published BIDEN SECRET EMAILS, an expose based on the contents of Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop:

Embedded Link: https://nypost.com/2020/10/14/email-reveals-how-hunter-biden-introduced-ukrainian-biz-man-to-dad/

Embedded Link Archive: https://archive.vn/VHd2v

#18 - 12:08 AM · Dec 3, 2022[16]

18. Twitter took extraordinary steps to suppress the story, removing links and posting warnings that it may be “unsafe.” They even blocked its transmission via direct message, a tool hitherto reserved for extreme cases, e.g. child pornography.

#19 - 12:09 AM · Dec 3, 2022[17]

19. White House spokeswoman Kaleigh McEnany was locked out of her account for tweeting about the story, prompting a furious letter from Trump campaign staffer Mike Hahn, who seethed: “At least pretend to care for the next 20 days.”
FjAw9WoWAAEOMVU.jpg

#20 - 12:12 AM · Dec 3, 2022[18]

20.This led public policy executive Caroline Strom to send out a polite WTF query. Several employees noted that there was tension between the comms/policy teams, who had little/less control over moderation, and the safety/trust teams:
FjAxiOUXwAAwbNt.jpg

#21 - 12:13 AM · Dec 3, 2022[19]

21. Strom’s note returned the answer that the laptop story had been removed for violation of the company’s “hacked materials” policy: https://web.archive.org/web/20190717143909/https://help.twitter.com/en/rules-and-policies/hacked-materials
FjAx0y2XwAAQ7cC.png

#22 - 12:18 AM · Dec 3, 2022[20]

22. Although several sources recalled hearing about a “general” warning from federal law enforcement that summer about possible foreign hacks, there’s no evidence - that I've seen - of any government involvement in the laptop story. In fact, that might have been the problem...

#23 - 12:19 AM · Dec 3, 2022[21]

23. The decision was made at the highest levels of the company, but without the knowledge of CEO Jack Dorsey, with former head of legal, policy and trust Vijaya Gadde playing a key role.

#24 - 12:19 AM · Dec 3, 2022[22]

24. “They just freelanced it,” is how one former employee characterized the decision. “Hacking was the excuse, but within a few hours, pretty much everyone realized that wasn’t going to hold. But no one had the guts to reverse it.”

#25 - 12:21 AM · Dec 3, 2022[23]

25.You can see the confusion in the following lengthy exchange, which ends up including Gadde and former Trust and safety chief Yoel Roth. Comms official Trenton Kennedy writes, “I'm struggling to understand the policy basis for marking this as unsafe”:
FjAzyaeX0AIsYd2.png

#26 - 12:24 AM · Dec 3, 2022[24]

26. By this point “everyone knew this was fucked,” said one former employee, but the response was essentially to err on the side of… continuing to err.
FjA0R6cWIAgdwlk.jpg

#27 - 12:26 AM · Dec 3, 2022[25]

27. Former VP of Global Comms Brandon Borrman asks, “Can we truthfully claim that this is part of the policy?”
FjA02YIWQAElTqy.png

#28 - 12:28 AM · Dec 3, 2022[26]

28. To which former Deputy General Counsel Jim Baker again seems to advise staying the non-course, because “caution is warranted”:
FjA1NY3WAAEcV-5.jpg

#29 - 12:30 AM · Dec 3, 2022[27]

29. A fundamental problem with tech companies and content moderation: many people in charge of speech know/care little about speech, and have to be told the basics by outsiders. To wit:

#30 - 12:31 AM · Dec 3, 2022[28]

30. In one humorous exchange on day 1, Democratic congressman Ro Khanna reaches out to Gadde to gently suggest she hop on the phone to talk about the “backlash re speech.” Khanna was the only Democratic official I could find in the files who expressed concern.
FjA2C14XEAQv2-G.png

#31 - 12:32 AM · Dec 3, 2022[29]

Gadde replies quickly, immediately diving into the weeds of Twitter policy, unaware Khanna is more worried about the Bill of Rights:
FjA2VaAXwAAlEBg.png

#32 - 12:34 AM · Dec 3, 2022[30]

32.Khanna tries to reroute the conversation to the First Amendment, mention of which is generally hard to find in the files:
FjA2s0gXEAE7vAr.png

#33 - 12:38 AM · Dec 3, 2022[31]

33.Within a day, head of Public Policy Lauren Culbertson receives a ghastly letter/report from Carl Szabo of the research firm NetChoice, which had already polled 12 members of congress – 9 Rs and 3 Democrats, from “the House Judiciary Committee to Rep. Judy Chu’s office.”
FjA3ZkOXgAAAhk0.png

#34 - 12:42 AM · Dec 3, 2022[32]

34.NetChoice lets Twitter know a “blood bath” awaits in upcoming Hill hearings, with members saying it's a "tipping point," complaining tech has “grown so big that they can’t even regulate themselves, so government may need to intervene.”
FjA4T3UXoAAmlLK.png

#35 - 12:43 AM · Dec 3, 2022[33]

35.Szabo reports to Twitter that some Hill figures are characterizing the laptop story as “tech’s Access Hollywood moment”:
FjA4u00XgAA2969.png

#36 - 12:45 AM · Dec 3, 2022[34]

36.Twitter files continued: 
"THE FIRST AMENDMENT ISN’T ABSOLUTE” 
Szabo’s letter contains chilling passages relaying Democratic lawmakers’ attitudes. They want “more” moderation, and as for the Bill of Rights, it's "not absolute"
FjA5SvhX0AI9uFJ.png

#37 - 12:55 AM · Dec 3, 2022[35]

An amazing subplot of the Twitter/Hunter Biden laptop affair was how much was done without the knowledge of CEO Jack Dorsey, and how long it took for the situation to get "unfucked" (as one ex-employee put it) even after Dorsey jumped in.

#38 - 12:55 AM-01:10 PM · Dec 3, 2022 [Deleted]

#39 - 01:10 PM · Dec 3, 2022[36]

There are multiple instances in the files of Dorsey intervening to question suspensions and other moderation actions, for accounts across the political spectrum

#40 - 01:30 PM · Dec 3, 2022[37]

The problem with the "hacked materials" ruling, several sources said, was that this normally required an official/law enforcement finding of a hack. But such a finding never appears throughout what one executive describes as a "whirlwind" 24-hour, company-wide mess.
FjBDehFWAAAJT5S.png

#41 - 01:35 PM · Dec 3, 2022[38]

It's been a whirlwind 96 hours for me, too. There is much more to come, including answers to questions about issues like shadow-banning, boosting, follower counts, the fate of various individual accounts, and more. These issues are not limited to the political right.

#42 - 01:37 PM · Dec 3, 2022[39]

Good night, everyone. Thanks to all those who picked up the phone in the last few days.

The Twitter Files Part 1 Supplemental - By Matt Taibbi


#1 - 9:38 PM · Dec 6, 2022[40]

THREAD: Twitter Files Supplemental

#2 - 9:39 PM · Dec 6, 2022[41]

On Friday, the first installment of the Twitter files was published here. We expected to publish more over the weekend. Many wondered why there was a delay.

#3 - 9:40 PM · Dec 6, 2022[42]

We can now tell you part of the reason why. On Tuesday, Twitter Deputy General Counsel (and former FBI General Counsel) Jim Baker was fired. Among the reasons? Vetting the first batch of “Twitter Files” – without knowledge of new management.

#4 - 9:42 PM · Dec 6, 2022[43]

The process for producing the “Twitter Files” involved delivery to two journalists (Bari Weiss and me) via a lawyer close to new management. However, after the initial batch, things became complicated.

#5 - 9:44 PM · Dec 6, 2022[44]

Over the weekend, while we both dealt with obstacles to new searches, it was @BariWeiss who discovered that the person in charge of releasing the files was someone named Jim. When she called to ask “Jim’s” last name, the answer came back: “Jim Baker.”

#6 - 9:44 PM · Dec 6, 2022[45]

“My jaw hit the floor,” says Weiss.

#7 - 9:45 PM · Dec 6, 2022[46]

The first batch of files both reporters received was marked, “Spectra Baker Emails.”
FjU2dhaVQAEXLdR.jpg

#8 - 9:47 PM · Dec 6, 2022[47]

Baker is a controversial figure. He has been something of a Zelig of FBI controversies dating back to 2016, from the Steele Dossier to the Alfa-Server mess. He resigned in 2018 after an investigation into leaks to the press.

#9 - 9:50 PM · Dec 6, 2022[48]

The news that Baker was reviewing the “Twitter files” surprised everyone involved, to say the least. New Twitter chief Elon Musk acted quickly to “exit” Baker Tuesday.

#10 - 9:54 PM · Dec 6, 2022[49]

Reporters resumed searches through Twitter Files material – a lot of it – today. The next installment of “The Twitter Files” will appear @bariweiss. Stay tuned.

The Twitter Files Part 13 Thread - By Alex Berenson

#1 - 7:08 PM · Jan 9, 2023[50]

1/ My first #TwitterFiles report: how @scottgottliebmd - a top Pfizer board member - used the same Twitter lobbyist as the White House to suppress debate on Covid vaccines, INCLUDING FROM A FELLOW HEAD OF @US_FDA!

Thanks @elonmusk for opening these files.

Embedded Link: https://alexberenson.substack.com/p/from-the-twitter-files-pfizer-board

Embedded Link Archive: https://archive.ph/BmLjC

#2 - 7:11 PM · Jan 9, 2023[51]

2/ In August 2021, Gottlieb told Todd O'Boyle - a senior manager in Twitter's public policy department - that a tweet from @drgiroir claiming CORRECTLY that natural immunity was superior to vaccine immunity was "corrosive" and might "go viral."

#3 - 7:15 PM · Jan 9, 2023[52]

3/ Twitter put a misleading tag on the tweet, preventing it from being shared. Gottlieb then went after a tweet about Covid's low risk to kids from @justin_hart. Pfizer would soon win the okay for its mRNA shots for children, so keeping parents scared was crucial...

#4 - 7:08 PM · Jan 9, 2023[53]

4/ In October 2022, @scottgottliebmd claimed on Twitter and CNBC that he was not trying to suppress debate on mRNA jabs. These files prove that Gottlieb - board member at a company that has made $70 billion on the shots - did just that.

Full story here:

Embedded Link Archive: https://archive.ph/BmLjC

#4 - Jan 9, 2023 - From the Twitter Files: Pfizer board member Scott Gottlieb secretly pressed Twitter to hide posts challenging his company's massively profitable Covid jabs [54]

To funnel his demands, Gottlieb used the same Twitter lobbyist the White House did - fresh evidence of overlap between the company selling mRNA shots and the government forcing them on the public.
On August 27, 2021, Dr. Scott Gottlieb - a Pfizer director with over 550,000 Twitter followers - saw a tweet he didn’t like, a tweet that might hurt sales of Pfizer’s mRNA vaccines.
The tweet explained correctly that natural immunity after Covid infection was superior to vaccine protection. It called on the White House to “follow the science” and exempt people with natural immunity from upcoming vaccine mandates.
It came not from an “anti-vaxxer” like Robert F. Kennedy Jr., but from Dr. Brett Giroir, a physician who had briefly followed Gottlieb as the head of the Food & Drug Administration. Further, the tweet actually encouraged people who did not have natural immunity to “Get vaccinated!”
No matter.
By suggesting some people might not need Covid vaccinations, the tweet could raise questions about the shots. Besides being former FDA commissioner, a CNBC contributor, and a prominent voice on Covid public policy, Gottlieb was a senior board member at Pfizer, which depended on mRNA jabs for almost half its $81 billion in sales in 2021. Pfizer paid Gottlieb $365,000 for his work that year.
Gottlieb stepped in, emailing Todd O’Boyle, a top lobbyist in Twitter’s Washington office who was also Twitter’s point of contact with the White House.
The post was “corrosive,” Gottlieb wrote. He worried it would “end up going viral and driving news coverage.”
0e86edd3-0e4f-42e9-b70c-80eb64f632bc 1170x798.jpg (SOURCE: Twitter)
I found the email in a search of records I ran at Twitter last week - part of Elon Musk’s “Twitter Files” effort to raise the veil on censorship decisions Twitter made before Musk bought the company in October.
I went into detail about my involvement at the Twitter Files in a Substack article[55][56] yesterday. I plan more reporting on the files in the weeks to come.
 —
 —
Through Jira, an internal system Twitter used for managing complaints, O’Boyle forwarded Gottlieb’s email to the Twitter “Strategic Response” team. That group was responsible for handling concerns from the company’s most important employees and users.
“Please see this report from the former FDA commissioner,” O’Boyle wrote - failing to mention that Gottlieb was a Pfizer board member with a financial interest in pushing mRNA shots.
A Strategic Response analyst quickly found the tweet did not violate any of the company’s misinformation rules.
Yet Twitter wound up flagging Giroir’s tweet anyway, putting a misleading tag on it and preventing almost anyone from seeing it. It remains tagged even though several[57][58] large [59][60] studies[61][62] have confirmed the truth of Giroir’s words.
D3341442-a1c8-4888-a55c-34286d1d5a43 1170x1531.jpg (SOURCE)[63][64]
—
A week later, on Sept. 3, 2021, Gottlieb tried to strike again, complaining to O’Boyle about a tweet from Justin Hart. Hart is a lockdown and Covid vaccine skeptic with more than 100,000 Twitter followers.
“Sticks and stones may break my bones but a viral pathogen with a child mortality rate of <>0% has cost our children nearly three years of schooling,” Hart had written[65][66].
Why Gottlieb objected to Hart’s words is not clear, but the Pfizer shot would soon be approved for children 5 to 11, representing another massive market for Pfizer, if parents could be convinced Covid was a real threat to their kids.
O’Boyle referred to “former FDA Commissioner Gottlieb” when he forwarded the report, again ignoring Gottlieb’s current work for Pfizer.
This time, though, Gottlieb’s complaint was so far afield that Twitter refused to act.
—
At the same time, Gottlieb was also pressing Twitter to act against me, as I disclosed on Substack[67][68] on Oct. 13, 2022, drawing on documents that Twitter’s pre-Musk regime provided to me as part of my lawsuit against it. (Gottlieb’s action was part of a larger conspiracy that included the Biden White House and Andrew Slavitt, working publicly and privately to pressure Twitter until it had no choice but to ban me. I will have more to say about my own case and will be suing the White House, Slavitt, Gottlieb, and Pfizer shortly.)
The morning after I wrote that article, Gottlieb appeared on CNBC, the financial news channel where he is a contributor, and offered what at best was a seriously misleading explanation of his actions and his motives.
Gottlieb did not deny pressing Twitter on me - he could not, given the documents I had released the night before.
But in an interview with Joe Kernan of CNBC, Gottlieb said he had asked Twitter to act only because he was concerned if tweets raised the threat of violence against vaccine advocates.
“The inability of these platforms to police direct threats, physical threats about people, that’s my concern about what’s going on in that ecosystem,” Gottlieb said.
2dff1648-a824-413a-8dee-09ed659f81d3 1170x1733.jpg SOURCE[69][70]
"I'm unconcerned about debate being made,” Gottlieb told Kernan. “I'm concerned about physical threats being made for people's safety."
In a tweet that morning, Gottlieb doubled down, writing[71][72]:
Respectful debate and dialogue is one thing, and should be encouraged and protected. But there's no place for targeted harassment, and misleading dialogue which can instigate a small but persuadable group of people to make targeted and dangerous threats.
But Brett Giroir’s tweet about natural immunity was the definition of “respectful debate and dialogue.” And in his own email to Todd O’Boyle, Gottlieb did not raise any security concerns about it. He simply complained that it might wind up “driving news coverage.
—
Gottlieb is not just a Pfizer board member.
He is one of seven members of the board’s executive committee and the head of its regulatory and compliance committee, which oversees “compliance with laws, regulations, and internal procedures applicable to pharmaceutical sales and marketing activities.”
Pfizer has a long history of violating drug industry laws and ethics rules. In 2009, it agreed to pay $2.3 billion, the largest health care fraud settlement in American history, for fraudulently marketing several drugs[73][74]. In 1996, it conducted a clinical trial of an antibiotic in Nigeria in which 11 children died and which became the inspiration for John le Carre’s novel The Constant Gardner.
Dbcd061a-370e-41e9-8383-ea0c9ffd9adc 1170x1524.jpg
So how will Pfizer react to the black-and-white proof from Twitter’s records that one of its most powerful board members secretly tried to suppress debate on the mRNA jabs that have has been by far its best-selling product since 2020?
And will CNBC continue to let Gottlieb use it to mislead the public?

16. What do all of these Twitter employees have in common? They were ALL hired since @realDonaldTrump was elected.

Why, after Trump was elected, did Twitter hire over a dozen ex FBI/CIA agents and place them in Senior Management roles?

#17 - 2:31 AM · Dec 7, 2022[91]

17. @elonmusk - how many "Jim Bakers" are imbedded in Twitter, possibly working against you? or....."watching" you. I'd advise you to do some investigating and clean house.

The Facebook Thread

#1 - 12:56 AM · Dec 19, 2022[92]

1. After learning that Twitter employs at least 15 former FBI agents, I searched Facebook. What I found is alarming

Facebook currently employs at least 115 people, in high-ranking positions, that formerly worked at FBI/CIA/NSA/DHS:

17 CIA
37 FBI 
23 NSA
38 DHS

2. All, but a few, of the former intelligence agents were hired, by Facebook after the 2016 Presidential Election & after the FBI established their social media-focused task force FTIF.

3. As @mtaibbi
detailed in #TwitterFiles Part 6, we know there was massive coordination of censorship between the FBI & Twitter during 2020-2022.

Who is controlling “misinfo” censorship at Facebook?

Is there similar coordination between Facebook & the Intelligence community?

4. The following is a list (obtained through PUBLICLY available LinkedIn profiles) of former CIA/FBI/NSA/DHS that are currently working at Facebook, at least 10 work in the Trust & Safety (Misinfo) department. Many of the LinkedIn profiles are private so those will not be posted.

Google’s Trust & Safety team is managed by 3 ex-CIA agents, who control “misinfo & hate speech.”

2. Since the 2016 Presidential election, Google/Facebook/Twitter have hired at least 300+ people formerly employed by CIA, FBI, etc

Ex-CIA agents are Heads of Trust & Safety at Google & Facebook. Is it OK that ex-CIA agents control what “misinfo” is?

32.   Reminder- Twitter currently employs at least 15 former FBI agents
 
Since Jim Baker was fired (after interfering with #TwitterFiles release) @Elonmusk
has been asked, numerous times, how many FBI agents remain at Twitter. He refuses to answer
 
Why?

34.   Why, since 2016, did Twitter, Facebook & Google go on a hiring blitz of former CIA, FBI, NSA, etc. and assign them to high level managerial positions, many of which oversee “misinformation” and censorship policy?

#35 - 12:55 AM · Dec 27, 2022[186]

35. Given the coordination we’ve seen between FBI & Twitter in #TwitterFiles, there should be more media coverage on hiring practices at Big Tech
 
.@JudiciaryGOP @Jim_Jordan should investigate why former IC agents are imbedded in high ranks of the largest Social Media companies
