How did the censors at Twitter get their marching orders? Much was conveyed through Vijaya Gadde, Twitter’s head of Trust and Safety. She’s among the first individuals fired by Twitter’s new owner Elon Musk.
Gadde met regularly with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to discuss the Biden administration’s desires for censorship on a wide range of topics. These included, but certainly were not limited to, the abysmal defeat in Afghanistan, the coronavirus pandemic and racial injustice. More from David Rubin on The Rubin Report.
Elon Musk has already stripped the power from members of Vijaya’s Trust and Safety team. They will no longer be permitted to ban individuals because of their political beliefs, as happened so frequently over the past year when thousands of conservatives lost their accounts.
Musk continues to fire the worst perpetrators of this censorship. It’s now estimated that one-fourth of the company’s 7,500 employees could be let go.
Otherwise, Joe Biden has already been fact-checked, and Musk has taken steps to protect the 2022 election. More from The Quartering.
