There are apparently a lot of former FBI people working in the top ranks at Twitter.
This raises all kinds of questions about the 2020 election and the banning of the New York Post over the Hunter Biden laptop.
Why are so many former intel people working at a social media company?
The New York Post reports:
Twitter’s top ranks riddled with ex-FBI employees
Twitter’s top ranks were riddled with ex-FBI agents and executives, stitching the company even closer to the federal agency now under fire for leaning on Twitter to meddle in the 2020 elections.
More than a dozen former feds flocked to the company in the months and years prior to Elon Musk’s purchase of the social network in October.
The Post found FBI influence was considerably more significant than just James Baker, the FBI’s former general counsel who later worked in the same role for Twitter. He was recently fired by Musk for interfering in the billionaire’s efforts to come clean about past transgressions at the company.
The news comes on the heels of the latest Twitter Files disclosures which show how the agency dedicated dozens of agents to pressuring the company to remove political tweets it found objectionable.
In some cases, the former G-men and -women held positions that would have put them close to company leadership directly involved in censoring The Post’s Hunter Biden coverage in October 2020.
Something smells rotten here.

80 FBI agents were working with Twitter to flag political disinformation.
Did they ever address hoaxmeister Aaron Rupar or perpetually misinformed Rob Reiner or anything on this disinformation list? pic.twitter.com/wrknyjkjZP

So it’s confirmed. The FBI was instructing Twitter to censor users for exercising their right to free speech.

It’s now clear the FBI actively pushed Twitter to censor American citizens engaged in constitutionally protected speech and making true statements. They sought to censor information—not misinformation or disinformation. This is a serious threat to democracy #TwitterFiles6

How did we come to this point?
