Twitter staff knew Trump hadn’t violated policy – Musk — RT World News


Company employees agreed that the sitting US president did not “incite violence”, the documents reveal

Twitter permanently suspended Donald Trump in the days following the January 6 riots on Capitol Hill even as staffers acknowledged among themselves that they had no good reason to ban the sitting US president, according to a report. Internal communications reviewed by journalist Bari Weiss.

The fifth part of the Twitter File was confirmed by the platform’s CEO, Elon Musk, who responded to it by saying that “Under pressure from hundreds of active employees, Twitter removed Trump… even though they themselves admitted that he wasn’t breaking the rules.”

While the messages between Twitter employees posted by Weiss on Monday showed widespread displeasure that Trump was “will try to insert the agitation needle without breaking the rules,” they also showed a general consensus that the besieged president wasn’t really “inciting violence” – not even in a “encrypted” way – with his tweets on and around the day of the ‘Stop Stealing’ rally.

However, hundreds of Twitter employees signed an open letter to the Washington Post asking CEO Jack Dorsey to ban the president, going so far as to imply their employer played a role in what the president said. President-elect Joe Biden and the legacy media have called “revolution.”

Vijaya Gadde, head of legal, policy and trust, is said to have picked up on someone’s hint that Trump’s technically innocuous tweets could be construed as “encrypted incitement to further violence.” At the same time, members of the platform “scale execution team” seems to embrace the idea that Trump is “the leader of a terrorist group responsible for the violence/death is comparable to the Christchurch shooter or Hitler and on that basis and on all his Tweets, he should be removed from the background. foundation,” according to the message posted by Weiss.

After a tense staff meeting, Twitter is said to have announced the permanent suspension of Trump “due to the risk of inciting further violence.” None of Twitter’s actual rules are broken, especially since political figures are allowed in the name of public interest.

Then-COO Parag Agrawal observed with Head of Security Peiter ‘Mudge’ Zatko that “IMO centralized content moderation has now reached a breaking point.”

Weiss and her fellow Twitter Profile reporters were selected by Musk to analyze the internal communications that led to Twitter blocking Hunter Biden’s laptop story and Trump’s ban. Musk has also promised revelations about preventing alternative views on Covid-19.
