The Latest On The Twitter Files


With all the stories of train derailments and toxic events, the Twitter files seem to have been buried in the current news cycle.

Despite a drop-off in national attention, this story is still important. …

The latest drop of the Twitter files shows that the State Department colluded with Twitter to shut down certain accounts accused of being ‘Russian misinformation’.

Mark R. Lenzi, an official working on behalf of the State Department, was responsible for the email listing the 12 accounts, and made it a point to stress that he is a Republican:

The Epoch Times had more details on the censorship efforts:

Lenzi said he was able to ascertain that the accounts were Russian-controlled because of “obvious mistakes (including grammar) that don’t make any sense if you were really a Republican,” as well as “distinct increases in their tweeting around the Iowa caucuses and [New Hampshire] primary.”

Lenzi listed 14 accounts; six have been suspended and one other no longer exists.

Twitter, Lenzi, and the State Department didn’t respond to a request for comment.

The collusion went far beyond the banning of accounts allegedly tied to ‘Russian disinformation’—the most favorite boogeyman and convenient excuse of the left-wing establishment, and hearkened back to the ‘enemies list’ of Nixon:

Senator Angus King’s part in the censorship collusion was detailed by The New York Post:

In a series of Saturday tweets, independent journalist Matt Taibbi revealed that King’s campaign director spoke to a Twitter exec on Oct. 1, 2018, to complain about the activities of hundreds of users.

An internal company email — titled “Suspicious Accounts from Senator Angus King” — said the campaign official also “provided a very large list (attached) of 354 suspicious Twitter accounts they have identified.”
