Journalist Taibbi: Twitter planned to block Trump months before Capitol was raided

WASHINGTON, December 10 – RIA Novosti. Journalist Matt Taibbi, citing internal documents from the company of the same name that owns the social network, claims that ideological preparations to block former US President Donald Trump’s Twitter account began months before it was raided by supporters of the Capitol.

Billionaire and Twitter owner Elon Musk promised founder Jack Dorsey that he would continue to disclose data on cases of hiding important information on the platform. In early December, Musk posted on social media a link to Matt Taibbi’s posts about the censorship in the Hunter Biden laptop scandal, son of incumbent US President Joe Biden.

A new disclosure group by a journalist is about the removal of his account from the social network after Trump’s supporters raided the government buildings complex on Capitol Hill on January 6, 2021. Awaiting the release of internal Twitter documents that were hidden from the general public, the journalist promised to explain “the erosion of campaign standards that had happened to him in the months leading up to the January events.”

“While much of the internal debate that led to Trump’s (account) ban took place after the Capitol riots of January 6, the intellectual foundation of this movement was laid in the months leading up to these events,” Taibbi said.

According to the data it published, in October 2020, the Twitter administration created a special channel where they discussed the possibility of blocking the accounts of people involved in the presidential election, especially high-ranking politicians.

“After completing the blocking of Trump, the Twitter leadership began to exercise the new authority. They were preparing to block future presidents and the White House administration, perhaps even Joe Biden (their accounts),” the journalist said.

At the same time, it is not yet possible to verify the authenticity of the information provided by Taibbi.
