In the first six threads of The Twitter Files, we explored the various ways in which Twitter has been used to censor, manipulate, and deplatform individuals and groups, and the broader implications of these actions for society. In Thread 7, titled “TWITTER FILES: PART 7 The FBI & the Hunter Biden Laptop,” the author examines the role of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the intelligence community in the controversy surrounding the laptop of Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, and the ways in which Twitter was used to censor information about the laptop and its contents.
Through a series of tweets and accompanying documents, the author presents evidence of the efforts by the FBI and intelligence community to discredit factual information about Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings both after and before The New York Post revealed the contents of his laptop on October 14, 2020. The thread also reveals that the government paid Twitter millions of dollars to censor information from the public.
Here are some key points covered in Thread 7:
- The efforts by the FBI and intelligence community to discredit factual information about Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings
- The censorship of information about the laptop and its contents by Twitter
- The payment of millions of dollars by the government to Twitter for censorship
