Today journalist David Zweig released the latest series of revelations from the Twitter Files, a series of releases organized by Elon Musk.

Acknowledging that past Twitter Files releases focused on how Twitter received orders from the Democratic Party, Joe Biden’s administration, the FBI, and occasionally from Republicans, Zweig said he would establish how this dynamic impacted the platform’s discussions stemming from COVID-19.

Zweig revealed that Twitter became subservient to the government under Trump, and continues to take its marching orders from Biden’s White House.

However, it does not appear Trump was directly involved in these conversations. It began when the Trump administration was concerned about social media helping to exacerbate panic buying at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, when it was nearly impossible to locate toilet paper.

While Trump’s administration apparently focused on the availability of food and supplies, Biden’s administration continued and escalated the relationship.

Alex Berenson, the former New York Times journalist, moral crusader against Infowars, and vaccine skeptic who sued Twitter after being banned, was mentioned in the latest leaks.

Later, Biden’s White House became enraged that Twitter was not doing enough to censor its users.

Still central to the story of Twitter’s censorship is Obama-era Department of Justice lawyer Jim Baker, who was fired from his Twitter job by Musk after revelations about his role at the company began.

One conversation between Baker and Yoel Roth, a top Twitter rule maker who was also fired by Musk, showed Baker questioning Roth about why Trump was not banned for expressing optimism about COVID-19.

Zweig essentially claims that Twitter made a brazenly political decision to consider “The Science” to be defined by Democrats and their media allies.
