WATCH: FTC Targeted Twitter Following Musk Takeover


690 views

The Federal Trade Commission took a special interest in Twitter following Elon Musk’s takeover of the tech giant. …

Very special interest, so special that they asked Musk to hand over information relating to the acquisition of the firm, internal procedures, and communications at least 350 separate times since he bought the company.

Aside from the obvious harassment, the FTC took a step too far when it sought the identities of journalists with access to the Twitter files.

All of this can be found in the House Judiciary Committee’s recent report.

Kanekoa shared a highlight from the recent panel discussing the Twitter files and online censorship:

According to The Epoch Times:

The committee said it recently obtained dozens of nonpublic FTC letters to Twitter, which it noted fall directly within its authority to investigate and report “on instances of the federal government’s authority being weaponized against U.S. citizens.”

The House committee’s report criticizes the FTC’s demand for information about journalists, calling it inappropriate in any setting.

 

 

Breitbart quotes Rep. Jim Jordan:

“This may be the most egregious threat to the First Amendment I’ve ever seen they and this harassment of Twitter started when Elon Musk bought the company.

I think 12 different letters they send in a span of like two months,” said Rep. Jordan.
