However, over at Twitter, the censors who were pressing to have Trump kicked off the social media platform were frantically silencing the President’s tweets, including this one, as a precursor to outright banning him. In Part 4 of the Twitter files we see how the Twitter senior executives were coming up with justifications to deny the president a platform.

– create justifications to ban Trump
– seek a change of policy for Trump alone, distinct from other political leaders
– express no concern for the free speech or democracy implications of a ban

Breaking: @ElonMusk @Twitter Files show Twitter activist employees, without basis, suppressed and censored the President of the United States, @realDonaldTrump in the days before the 2020 election. This is damning evidence of election interference.— Tom Fitton (@TomFitton) December 10, 2022
