A new round of Twitter Files dropped on Monday morning, revealing the extent to which the federal government, under both Presidents Donald Trump and Joe Biden had pressured Twitter to censor and suppress information on Covid, Covid vaccines, and the public reactions to the pandemic, that went against their interests.

“THREAD: THE TWITTER FILES: HOW TWITTER RIGGED THE COVID DEBATE – By censoring info that was true but inconvenient to U.S. govt. policy,” David Zweig for Free Press began, “By discrediting doctors and other experts who disagreed – By suppressing ordinary users, including some sharing the CDC’s *own data*”

“In terms of actions… that we have taken or are working to take from the federal government. We’ve increased disinformation research and tracking within the Surgeon General’s office. We’re flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation. We’re working with doctors and medical professionals to connect two connected medical experts who are popular with their audiences with accurate information and boost trusted content.

“So we’re helping get trusted content out there. We also created the COVID Community Corps to get factual information into the hands of local messengers. And we’re also investing in the President’s, the Vice President’s and Dr. Fauci’s time in meeting with influencers who also have large reaches to a lot of these target audiences who can spread and share accurate information.”

The White House issued a plan for how social media companies should censor information.

“A December 2022 summary of meetings with the White House by Lauren Culbertson, Twitter’s Head of U.S. Public Policy, adds new evidence of the White House’s pressure campaign, and cements that it repeatedly attempted to directly influence the platform,” Zweig wrote.

“Culbertson wrote that the Biden team was “very angry” that Twitter had not been more aggressive in deplatforming multiple accounts. They wanted Twitter to do more.” Zweig shared a document showing that “The Biden team was not satisfied with Twitter’s enforcement approach as they wanted Twitter to do more to deplatform several accounts. Because of this dissatisfaction, we were asked to join several other calls. They were very angry in nature.”

Tweets about children’s resilience to Covid, or that they were not in need of vaccination, were repeatedly flagged though the tweets were not in violation.

A Trump tweet was flagged as well, which was about his leaving Walter Reed Medical Center after being treated for Covid.

The tweet read “I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!”

Former FBI director Jim Baker, then Twitter’s Deputy General Counsel, asked “why telling people to not be afraid wasn’t a violation of Twitter’s Covid-19 misinformation policy,” Zweig reports.

An email from Baker reads to Yoel Roth and Stacia Cardille reads: “Why isn’t this POTUS tweet a violation of our COVID-19 policy? (especially the ‘Don’t be afraid of Covid’ statement)?”
