Elon Musk Says He’ll Make Public Internal Twitter Discussions About Censorship of Hunter Biden Laptop Story



Could the truth about censoring the Hunter Biden laptop story finally be revealed?

Twitter CEO Elon Musk responded to a tweet calling for all internal discussions about the censoring of the New York Post’s Hunter Biden story to be made public.

Musk stated: “This is necessary to restore public trust”

Musk previously tweeted: “Suspending the Twitter account of a major news organization for publishing a truthful story was obviously incredibly inappropriate.”

Recall that Twitter suspended the New York Post’s account for tweeting out a link to the story showing possible shady business dealings with China and Ukraine involving the then-vice president.

From Newsmax:

The Post in October 2020 reported that a laptop of then-presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son showed possible shady business dealings with China and Ukraine involving the then-vice president.

When the Post tweeted a link to the story, Twitter suspended its account, saying the story violated its rules against “hacked” materials. Facebook also limited sharing of the story.

The day after Twitter blocked the Post’s stories, then-CEO Jack Dorsey posted that “straight blocking of URLs was wrong, and we updated our policy and enforcement to fix.”

Still, the Post’s account remained locked for weeks, with Twitter demanding the Hunter Biden laptop tweets be deleted.

Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey admitted that the suspension was a “total mistake.”

The New York Post reported:

Twitter doesn’t have a “censoring department” that blocked The Post from tweeting last fall, CEO Jack Dorsey said Thursday — but he wouldn’t reveal who was responsible for the blunder.

At a congressional hearing on misinformation and social media, Dorsey said Twitter made a “total mistake” by barring users from sharing The Post’s bombshell October report about Hunter Biden’s emails.

Twitter also locked The Post out of its account for more than two weeks over baseless charges that the exposé used hacked information — a decision Dorsey chalked up to a “process error.”

“It was literally just a process error. This was not against them in any particular way,” Dorsey told the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

“If we remove a violation we require people to correct it,” he added. “We changed that based on their to wanting to delete that tweet, which I completely agree with. I see it. But it is something we learn.”
