NO TWIT, BUDDY! Elon Musk Admits 'Twitter Has Interfered in Elections'

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.30.22

Twitter CEO Elon Musk continues to make news with every tweet.

According to a Fox News report, in a reply to one Twitter user, Elon Musk admitted that the social media platform has interfered in elections in the past. Not exactly a bombshell —it’s something most people can deduce by spending a few minutes on the platform.

But it’s nice to hear the new CEO say it out loud (in a tweet). Musk also promised Twitter 2.0 will be better.

“Twitter has shown itself to be not safe for the past 10 years and has lost users’ trust. The past team of “trust and safety” is a disgrace, so it doesn’t have any right to judge what is being done now. They had a chance, but they sold their souls to a corporation,” one user said on Twitter.

Musk replied: “Exactly. The obvious reality, as long-time users know, is that Twitter has failed in trust & safety for a very long time and has interfered in elections. Twitter 2.0 will be far more effective, transparent and even-handed.”

From Fox Business:

Twitter’s content moderation policies have been harshly criticized by free speech advocates, particularly on the right, who have accused the company of enforcing its rules against conservatives in a one-sided manner. The suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story happened in the lead up to the 2020 presidential election and was believed by many conservatives to have been motivated by a desire to shield then-candidate Joe Biden from scrutiny over his family’s foreign business dealings.
