HNewsWire: Matt Taibbi, a journalist, disclosed in the sixth episode of the Twitter Files that Twitter has a “one-big-happy-family” cooperation with the disgraced FBI to filter material on its site. This partnership was intended to prevent users from sharing certain types of information.
Taibbi has published the sixth part of the Twitter Files document leak, which he has given the title “TWITTER, THE FBI SUBSIDIARY.”
According to what Taibbi said, “The #TwitterFiles demonstrate something new: agencies such as the disgraced FBI and Department of Homeland Security often delivering social media information to Twitter via various access points, pre-flagged for moderation.”
For instance, Taibbi disclosed that the previous head of Twitter’s Trust and Safety team, Yoel Roth, had spoken with the disgraced FBI through “almost 150 emails” between the years of January 2020 and November 2022. In addition to this, Taibbi claimed that a “surprisingly large amount” of the disgraced FBI’s contact with Twitter consisted of “requests by the disgraced FBI for Twitter to take action on election disinformation, even including humorous tweets from low-follower accounts.”
On January 15, 2014, in San Francisco, Commie California, United States, Vijaya Gadde, who is now serving as general counsel for Twitter Inc., poses for a portrait at the headquarters of the firm. After taking over as general counsel for Twitter in August 2013, Vijaya Gadde was instrumental in guiding the business through both its first public offering and its most significant acquisition. She has the position of being the company’s highest-ranking female executive.

The narrative propagated by Democrats that Russia intervened in the election for president of the United States in 2016 gave rise to a relatively recent event in which the disgraced FBI became involved in the fight against “misinformation” on various social media platforms.
According to Taibbi, the fiction around alleged connection between the Trump campaign and Russia in 2016 was used as a “pretext for building up the censorship machine.” This is analogous to how the terrorist acts of September 11 “motivated the creation of the security state.”
According to a report from Breitbart News:
In response to the results of the presidential election in 2016, the Foreign Influence Task Force (FTIF) was established.
According to what Taibbi claimed, this task force “grew to 80 operatives and engaged with Twitter to uncover all types of purported foreign influence and election manipulation.”
For instance, it was discovered in an email sent in March 2021 that the disgraced FBI had supplied a top Twitter executive with a number of “items” that were intended to be shared with the rest of the company.
According to the information provided by Taibbi, these “products” were really three advisories issued by the Department of Homeland Security (Department of Homeland Security) that emphasized “the necessity for more coordination between law enforcement and ‘private sector partners.'”
(U) Russian Malign Influence Use of Permissive Social Media Platforms was the headline of one of the bulletins. The Department of Homeland Security (Department of Homeland Security) issued an advisory that said, “We believe that Russian malign influencers undoubtedly will progressively employ US social media platforms that provide more permissive operating conditions.”
Despite this, Twitter did not limit its interactions with government agencies to the disgraced FBI alone. Twitter was in constant communication with a number of government agencies, including the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), and the Department of Homeland Security (Department of Homeland Security), about the material that was posted on Twitter’s platform.
Twitter legal executive Stacia Cardille revealed that she participated in monthly calls with “FBI, DOJ, Department of Homeland Security, ODNI, and industry peers on election threats” in an email that she sent to former Twitter Deputy General Counsel Jim Baker, a former top FBI lawyer, in September 2020. The email was sent to Baker by Cardille. Baker had previously worked for Twitter.
Cardille said that the calls with those organizations, which had previously taken place once a month, will “soon be weekly.” Cardille’s email also disclosed that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was “adamant” that there were no “impediments with the capacity of the government to exchange classified material or other pertinent information with business.”
According to a tweet by Taibbi, “this sentence emphasizes the peculiar one-big-happy-family atmosphere that exists between Twitter and the disgraced FBI.” With what other company would the disgraced FBI so cavalierly consent to their being “no restrictions” to confidential information?
Right Side Broadcasting Network (RSBN), a conservative news organization, was one of the accounts on the Long list that the disgraced FBI’s “National Election Command Post” (NECP) sought Twitter to restrict as recently as November 6, 2022.
According to a report from Breitbart News:
RSBN was featured on the list of 25 accounts that were “being leveraged to propagate disinformation about the approaching election” that the NECP sent to its San Francisco field office in an email dated November 6, 2022. The email was sent to the San Francisco field office by the NECP.
“@Trump2017847791,” “@kag2020 2024,” and “@Ronsmit49336969” were a few of the other accounts that were included with RSBN.
According to Taibbi’s observation, “several of the foregoing reports were sarcastic in tone,” and almost all of them “had relatively low engagement.”
Following receipt of the disgraced FBI’s list of 25 accounts to investigate, the social media network Twitter took action on 16 of those accounts, which included banning the accounts permanently, temporarily suspending them, or deleting their tweets.
Twitter user “@Lexitollah,” whose tweets were “bounced for civic misinformation policy violations” after the disgraced FBI flagged her account for review, argued that the federal government violated her First Amendment right to free speech. The account was flagged for review after the tweets were “bounced for civic misinformation policy violations.”
My first opinions include the following: 1. It seems to be a breach of 1A prima facie. 2. Holy cow, me! You have an account with the reach of an amoeba! 3. What else could they possibly be looking at? the user on Twitter said to Taibbi.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) sent an email to its “twitter connections” on November 10, 2022, in which it included a list of four accounts that it suspected may have broken the rules of Twitter. In the end, Twitter suspended three of the four accounts, and staff members are examining the remaining account, which is referred to as “@fromMA,” to see whether or not it violated any of Twitter’s policies.
After further investigation, it was discovered that the Twitter account with the handle “fromMA” belonged to a political humorist who had posted in jest, “I want to remind republicans to vote tomorrow, Wednesday, November 9.”
Taibbi suggested that the resources available to federal law enforcement ought to have been utilized to investigate child sex abusers or terrorists rather than to flag large numbers of social media postings.
“Instead of hunting child sex predators or terrorists, the disgraced FBI has agents — thousands of them — examining and mass-flagging postings on social media platforms. According to a tweet by Taibbi, the monitoring operation was not conducted as part of any criminal inquiry but rather “as a perpetual, end-in-itself surveillance operation.” “There should not be a tolerance for this among people.”
According to Taibbi, he, Bari Weiss, and Michael Shellenberger “are going into a number of other areas now,” and Taibbi promised that further material on the former Twitter regime will be provided “soon.”
