Another installment of the explosive Twitter Files was released on Christmas Eve. It turns out that not only did the FBI have their hand in moderating Twitter, but they were also basically acting as moderators for Twitter.
How corrupt does it get?
4.The files show the FBI acting as doorman to a vast program of social media surveillance and censorship, encompassing agencies across the federal government – from the State Department to the Pentagon to the CIA.

From the State Department to the Pentagon to the CIA. Unbelievable.
Fox News political analyst Brit Hume brilliantly used one word to summarize the lengthy Taibbi tweet.
This tweet is part of a very long thread with much detail on the extent of the interaction between the government and Twitter. The purpose: censorship. https://t.co/QLJ5sbgNYZ

The government was attempting to control and suppress the public through the use of social media. This scenario sounds like it could be the plot of a Brad Thor novel, but unfortunately, it is happening in real life. There are also still waiting for the expected COVID drop, which could be a significant event.
Purpose is NOT censorship. It was to remove dis-information and lies. They got help from US Govt agencies to decide additionally what was disinformation. What's wrong with it?

Just to clear things up, imagine if this was being directed by the other side.
Try this thought experiment: the Trump administration doing the same thing, using its own definition of misinformation and lies. Companies comply based on worries the gov might go after them if they don't.
See any problems now?

The same people cheerleading the FBI for censoring Twitter would be irate.
