The intelligence community worked to ensure Twitter would quash The New York Post’s report on Hunter Biden’s laptop. New internal documents released by Twitter show the company received over $3 million from the FBI in the run-up to the 2020 election.
Michael Shellenberger released several documents in a thread titled “TWITTER FILES: PART 7.” The internal files show how the intelligence community sought to influence the company.
One goal of the FBI’s campaign was to censor content on the platform. High-ranking Twitter employees attended conferences with representatives from the intelligence community. At the meetings, the executives were primed to believe Russia would use the platform to influence the 2020 elections.
However, the documents released by Shellenberger show Twitter repeatedly told the FBI they have no evidence of any Russian interference. A June 26, 2020, email from Twitter exec Yoel Roth said, “we don’t at this time have a clear indication that [the accounts] are foreign in origin.”
