1 min read Original Link

New Twitter CEO Elon Musk promoted a series of tweets Friday that revealed the company's internal files that appear to show the previous management buried or blocked Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop scandal story during the 2020 US presidential election. 

In a lengthy thread, independent journalist Matt Taibbi said he received "thousands of internal documents" from Twitter sources pointing to the suppression of the Biden laptop story on Twitter in which the company controversially blocked people from tweeting and direct-messaging about the story.

"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," Taibbi tweeted.
