If you’re like me, you may use Twitter as a way to stay connected with friends, stay up-to-date on the latest news and trends, and maybe even share a few of your own thoughts and opinions. But as you scroll through your feed, have you ever stopped to wonder what goes on behind the scenes at the social media giant? The Twitter Files, a series of threads on the platform, aims to shed light on the inner workings of Twitter and the ways in which it has influenced and been influenced by society.
Thread 1, titled “THE TWITTER FILES,” serves as a comprehensive overview of the series and sets the stage for the topics that will be covered in the subsequent threads. In this thread, the author discusses the various ways in which Twitter has been used to censor, manipulate, and deplatform individuals and groups, including political leaders, activists, and ordinary users. The thread also looks at the ways in which the social media platform has assisted government agencies in their investigations and efforts to monitor online activity, and examines the implications of these actions for privacy and civil liberties.
