The Twitter Files Raised A Lot Of Questions About Twitter And The FBI. The Bureau Hasn’t Answered Any Of Them

The FBI has left important questions unanswered after documents from the “Twitter Files” revealed that the bureau influenced Twitter’s content moderation.

The FBI had a major influence on Twitter’s decision to censor the New York Post’s reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop and made numerous censorship requests to Twitter in the lead-up to the 2020 election, as documented in the “Twitter Files” reporting by independent journalists Michael Shellenberger and Matt Taibbi.

Former Twitter Head of Trust and Safety Yoel Roth had weekly meetings with the FBI in the months before the 2020 election, he said in a Dec. 2020 sworn deposition. The FBI also warned Roth of a potential “hack-and-leak” operation by state actors that would target Hunter Biden shortly before the election, Roth said.
