So, the government has been caught in yet another lie.
We have been told time and again that the government was not pushing Twitter to suspend accounts.
All they were doing was providing information to the platform for it to do what it saw fit.
The latest Twitter Files drop proves that they were lying to us once again.
Ban Them All
Matt Taibbi did another significant drop on Tuesday, and it is not good for the government.
Government agencies had requested that Twitter suspend 250,000 accounts, which included some journalists and Canadian officials…

Twitter had done its diligence on trying to find a link between accounts and Russian disinformation, but it had come up empty, but that meant little to big brother…
11.The GEC report appeared based on DHS data circulated earlier that week, and included accounts that followed “two or more” Chinese diplomatic accounts. They reportedly ended up with a list “nearly 250,000” names long, and included Canadian officials and a CNN account: pic.twitter.com/GYi4YuPdyu

Even without the proof, Twitter eventually caved and started suspending the accounts on the list, including journalists that dared to challenge the origins of the virus.
Additionally, they were targeted accounts that followed multiple Chinese diplomat accounts.
My guess there is that they did not want them retweeting tweets from Chinese officials.
These drops have led to the complete distrust of the government by many Americans.
It was bad enough that they did this, but they have been lying about it knowing full well that Musk had every intention of exposing this scandal.
The only thing that is more infuriating is the fact that most mainstream media outlets continue to ignore the story.
Other than Fox News, where have these stories been printed in the mainstream media?
Honestly, if I did not check my Twitter account regularly, I would have missed this story altogether.
Big Brother is a reality… that I am certain of.
