One can only imagine the gurgling sounds in the digestive tracts of Twitter employees past and present, as well as people in the White House, on Capitol Hill, and within the bowels of the leftist lapdog media.
Less than a month after finalizing his takeover of Twitter, Elon Musk has not only turned the Twittersphere upside down; through his acquisition of the formerly left-wing social media site with a penchant for censoring or suspending conservative accounts in the wink of a leftist’s eye, the enigmatic richest dude on the planet has singlehandedly caused a cataclysmic meltdown on the left on a scale rarely seen.
From laying bare Twitter’s former censorship program to reinstating Donald Trump’s account (which his Truth Social contractual agreement will likely keep the former president from enjoying), to announcing a “general amnesty” for suspended accounts, the left’s pressure gauge is in the red zone and ready to blow.
Welp, maybe this will do it. On Wednesday Musk teased on Twitter that he might release likely damning information on Twitter’s internal discussions regarding censorship of stories about Hunter Biden’s laptop scandal prior to the 2020 election. Gulp.
Musk said that releasing internal Twitter messages about Biden’s laptop is “necessary to restore public trust.” And there it is.
One of Musk’s paramount objectives is to restore public trust in Twitter, the Big Tech giant that formerly didn’t give a damn about ‘”public trust” and was singularly concerned with pushing out left-wing propaganda while suppressing, censoring, suspending, or outright banning conservative accounts on the site.
Our story begins with Twitter user ALX tweeting a “raise your hand” poll, of sorts:
Raise your hand if you think Elon Musk should make public all internal discussions about the decision to censor the NY Post’s story on Hunter Biden’s laptop before the 2020 Election in the interest of transparency.
For the record, my hand is raised.
Raise your hand if you think @ElonMusk should make public all internal discussions about the decision to censor the @NYPost’s story on Hunter Biden’s laptop before the 2020 Election in the interest of Transparency.

Musk responded to ALX’s tweet, in concise Musk style:
This is necessary to restore public trust.
This is necessary to restore public trust

Remaining Twitter employees potentially implicated in whatever documentation Musk might release are no doubt shaking in their Vans and Hokas, and whatever else they wear on the job.
As we’re all aware, when the New York Post broke the story about messages found on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop in October 2020, weeks before the presidential election, Twitter and Facebook suppressed the story – and Twitter actually banned it from the platform. National security officials past and present declared that the story was Russian disinformation aimed at influencing the election. Now, more than two years later, mainstream outlets like The New York Times, CBS News, and The Washington Post have confirmed the authenticity of the laptop and the messages found on it, including those about Hunter’s business deals in Ukraine and China and his meetings with influential foreign leaders.
Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey later admitted to Congress during 2020 testimony that the social media company made a mistake in taking action against the Post over its Hunter Biden laptop story.
We were called here today because of an enforcement decision we made against the New York Post based on a policy we created in 2018 to prevent Twitter from being used to spread hacked materials. This resulted in us blocking people from sharing a New York Post article publicly or privately.
We made a quick interpretation using no other evidence that the materials in the article were obtained through hacking, and according to our policy, we blocked them from being spread. Upon further consideration, we admitted this action was wrong and corrected it within 24 hours.
So now, Elon is likely to turn the screws even tighter than he already has by exposing past and current employees over internal discussions prior to, during, and after Twitter was rocked by its censorship of a yuuge story that turned out to be true, after all — one presidential election too late.
Imagine that, Joe.
