As a side note before I begin, there will be another Twitter File drop later today. Yahooo!
Tonight, Matt Taibbi broke a potentially huge political corruption story by publishing a detailed account of the censoring of the NY Post’s Hunter Biden laptop article. But he didn’t place it at the New York Times, Washington Post, or any other media outlet.
The reaction on the platform was a mixture of emotions. For a lot of us it was relief of confirmation of what we had suspected back in 2020 when the story broke and then immediately suppressed. At the same time, no one could have fathomed the lengths Twitter went to censor the laptop scandal, or the direct involvement of the DNC with the Twitter staff. The actions taken by the staff and justification for the censorship is beyond breaking the first amendment. It was clearly election interference.
There was shock, giddiness, and most of all gratitude for what Elon has done for freedom of speech. It was a historical night we will all remember and Elon is now on the map for the guy who shattered censorship. But the only way to describe the energy on the platform after reading the Twitter Files, is to show you. So I have randomly chosen the tweets I thought were interesting, pertinent and humorous, and placed them on this blog, I hope you enjoy and get the feel the energy of the platform, all over again.
The link below is the full 644 page Hunter Biden Laptop report. The hidden scandal that many people will be questioned about after last night, and could possibly be another reason to impeach Joe Biden, we will know within the next few days to see what unfolds.
But first came the anticipation of the roll out of the Twitter Files. Elon had tweeted earlier in the day that the event would begin at 5pm EST – The replies to his tweet are most interesting and a part of a very historical night.
However, we didn’t see the roll out at 5pm and Elon tweeted once again:
We then saw another tweet from Elon, building up our excitement and with a popcorn emoji this time. Again the replies/comments are worth looking at, some humorous impatience and some guessing what the files would contain.
We waited for another estimated 1.5 hrs, and then the magic happened:
Follow the thread below for the files in its entirety, just tap Matt’s thread and read all 22,000 replies of the emotions roll out. Matt Taibbi is a journalist who compiled the files.
Below is a twitter link by a man on the platform who is or was a journalist. He wrote a short story about how Twitter was when he joined in 2009 and how it has evolved with Elon Musk – A really enjoyable 5 min. read.
I have been up all night since the Twitter File dropped, as have many others. The platform has never been so busy at 3-4am. I feel like I have been at an after hours bar except I’m sober. It’s now 7am and I just noticed that Elon has also been tweeting all night. Exciting times!!
