BREAKING: Newest Twitter Files Drop Exposes The “REMOVAL OF DONALD TRUMP”

Matt Taibbi just dropped the latest batch of bombshell documents from the “Twitter Files”, and today’s topic is a doozy.

Yes, THE REMOVAL OF DONALD TRUMP from Twitter. Let’s get right into the thread…

He continued to set the stage by tweeting the following:

Then began the REAL good stuff, where they discussed banning future politicians:

Taibbi followed up by revealing Twitter partially made their decision to ban Trump based on what he had tweeted during the last 4 years:

Taibbi continues:

The bulk of the internal debate leading to Trump’s ban took place in those three January days. However, the intellectual framework was laid in the months preceding the Capitol riots.

Before J6, Twitter was a unique mix of automated, rules-based enforcement, and more subjective moderation by senior executives. As
Bari Weiss reported, the firm had a vast array of tools for manipulating visibility, most all of which were thrown at Trump (and others) pre-J6

As the election approached, senior executives – perhaps under pressure from federal agencies, with whom they met more as time progressed – increasingly struggled with rules, and began to speak of “vios” as pretexts to do what they’d likely have done anyway.

Taibbi followed up with this:


These initial reports are based on searches for docs linked to prominent executives, whose names are already public. They include Roth, former trust and policy chief Vijaya Gadde, and recently plank-walked Deputy General Counsel (and former top FBI lawyer) Jim Baker.

One particular slack channel offers an unique window into the evolving thinking of top officials in late 2020 and early 2021.

On October 8th, 2020, executives opened a channel called “us2020_xfn_enforcement.” Through J6, this would be home for discussions about election-related removals, especially ones that involved “high-profile” accounts (often called “VITs” or “Very Important Tweeters”).

Here’s a screenshot of that message:

Taibbi continues:

There was at least some tension between Safety Operations – a larger department whose staffers used a more rules-based process for addressing issues like porn, scams, and threats – and a smaller, more powerful cadre of senior policy execs like Roth and Gadde.

Here’s more from the thread, revealing that Trump was actually RIGHT about election fraud claims, yet they flagged him anyways:
