With Elon Musk now steering the figurative ship over at social media giant Twitter, there have been no shortage of controversies hitting the headlines…not all of them surrounding the eccentric billionaire.
For instance, Musk’s release of “The Twitter Files”: A number of documents from the company’s internal files that show how the influential media corporation meddled in the 2020 election through selective censorship.
Now, Twitter’s original chief is responding, and pushing Musk to take things a step further.
Ex-Twitter boss Jack Dorsey has called on current CEO Elon Musk to make all the “Twitter files” public after the company’s former deputy general counsel James Baker was “exited” for his role in the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story.
Musk has teased the release of additional “Twitter files” that purport to show how the company worked to censor certain speech, as many conservatives have long asserted. Dorsey on Wednesday suggested that Musk release all the internal documents at once, “without filter,” and also explain the actions Twitter will take under its new management.
Dorsey didn’t hold back.
“If the goal is transparency to build trust, why not just release everything without filter and let people judge for themselves? Including all discussions around current and future actions?” Dorsey asked. “Make everything public now.”
Musk has promised to push a new “free speech” approach with the enormous social media site – a move that has been irking Democrats who’ve long enjoyed overt political bias from the leadership at Twitter.
