DNC Flagged Posts About Hunter Biden Laptop To Twitter Censors

Jul 14, 2023 | Political News

A newly released batch of the “Twitter Files” reveals efforts by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to pressure Twitter into censoring accounts that shared media coverage of Hunter Biden’s laptop ahead of the 2020 election.

Published by independent reporter Matt Taibbi on Wednesday, the new emails show DNC officials requested Twitter remove accounts that shared a link to a Gateway Pundit story “contain[ing] airbrushed images from Hunter Biden videos, as well as ‘information on how to look up and view the videos in question.'” According to Taibbi, Twitter found this “violative.”

While Taibbi notes that “non-consensual nudity” (NCN) is considered a violation of Twitter rules, internal correspondence among company employees shows how not even Twitter thought many of the tweets flagged by the DNC warranted removal under the rule.
