The bombshell’s revelation that government organizations were collaborating closely with Twitter to censor and block their opposition was revealed further.
One discovery made by Taibbi revealed how Democratic Representative Adam Schiff attempted to get investigative journalist Paul Sperry’s Twitter account suspended using his power.
According to Taibbi, Twitter was accepting requests “from everywhere: from Treasury, the NSA, almost every state, the HHS, from the FBI and DHS, and more.”
They also got an amazing range of requests from officials asking them to prohibit people they didn’t like. Here, the office of Democrat and chair of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff requests that journalist Paul Sperry be blocked on Twitter, according to Taibbi.
He attached the following photo:
Musk then called out Schiff on Twitter: “Hey @RepAdamSchiff, what’s this?”
Sperry was later taken from the website, despite Schiff’s inability to get the investigative journalist quickly suspended.
Musk’s focus has been more focused on Schiff as he seeks to expose the dishonesty of Washington lawmakers.
Musk completely dismantled Schiff by making fun of his little brain in late December. In recent weeks, Schiff and other Democrat politicians have attacked Musk, but the billionaire has had none of it.
Elon Musk made the remark in response to a tweet from Schiff that said: “Elon Musk claims to be an absolute believer in free speech in order to rationalize ignoring bigotry and intolerance on Twitter. However, when they publish bad news, journalists face an arbitrary prohibition. It seems that the commitment to free expression is not that strong. But there is hypocrisy.
Regarding Schiff’s leadership of the House Intelligence Committee, Musk retorted, “Thankfully, you lose your chairmanship very shortly.” You have a little brain.
Musk also attacked Senator Elizabeth Warren on Tuesday after she attacked Tesla by writing to the Tesla board to inquire whether investors had been “harmed” by Musk’s purchase of Twitter.
According to the New York Times, Elizabeth Warren has written to Tesla’s board to inquire whether investors have been damaged by the billionaire tech mogul’s term as social network CEO.
Elizabeth Warren is the last person I would ever want near Tesla, Farzad Mesbahi responded to the tweet from Unusual Whales.
Musk then took aim at Warren in his direct response to Mesbahi’s tweet.
He wrote, “The United States has clearly suffered by having her as a senator lol.”
@CollinRugg is my Twitter handle.
With regard to corporate and labor regulations, Warren has threatened Musk with “serious legal problems” and has accused Musk of misusing his position of authority ever since he took control of Twitter.
Given that Warren belongs to America’s political elite class, the issue of power abuse is rather hilarious.
She said in the Sunday letter, “As you know, it is the legal duty of Tesla’s board to ensure that its C.E.O. is meeting all his legal obligations and performing as an effective leader.
Warren previously admitted to being quite upset about Musk’s purchase of Twitter to CBS late-night presenter Stephen Colbert in November.
Warren said that no billionaire should have so much authority over how Americans and others across the world are given the opportunity to interact. “I have a serious issue with him,”
“This agreement poses a threat to our democracy. Billionaires like Elon Musk operate under a different set of regulations from the rest of society and amass power for their personal benefit. Ironically, she wrote in a tweet, “We need a wealth tax and tough regulations to hold Big Tech accountable.
