After a series of “Twitter Files” showed Twitter’s widespread coordination with the FBI and other agencies to regulate public conversation prior to Elon Musk’s takeover of the digital giant, the FBI attempted to recover its reputation on Wednesday by portraying the discoveries as standard procedure.
Tuesday saw the release of the ninth edition of “Twitter Files” by investigative journalist Lee Fang, highlighting how the social media giant quietly assisted the Pentagon’s secret online PsyOp effort.
On Monday, Ron Paul tweeted, “Twitter Files Make it Clear: We Must Abolish the FBI.” Meanwhile, House Republicans warn: Subpoenas will fly to the FBI over Twitter Files. According to Mr. Paul, as the public discovers more about the “Twitter Files,” it becomes all too clear that federal agencies such as the FBI considered the First Amendment as an irritation and a hindrance.
James Woods spoke on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Friday to address the new revelation from internal papers provided by Matt Taibbi that Twitter had filtered his posts.
