On Wednesday, Twitter Founder Jack Dorsey demanded new Twitter Owner Elon Musk release all of the “Twitter Files.” Dorsey responded to a Musk tweet asking the billionaire to release all the emails “without filter” to build trust.
Musk and Substack reporter Matt Taibbi released the “Twitter Files,” a group of internal communications between officials at Twitter about how to suppress or affect specific political content.
Part one of the emails were released a few days ago but as Musk teased a part two and the former Head of Twitter, Dorsey, surprisingly asked for an unfiltered version of these communications.
“If the goal is transparency to build trust, why not just release everything without filter and let people judge for themselves? Including all discussions around current and future actions? Make everything public now. #TwitterFiles,” Dorsey tweeted.
To which Musk responded, “Most important data was hidden (from you too) and some may have been deleted, but everything we find will be released.”
This was a surprising exchange as Dorsey’s connection to the “Twitter Files” is in limbo. Musk is not the biggest fan of Dorsey’s tenure as head of the company and the two had debated in the past, but here Dorsey is requesting his company’s transgressions be displayed in full.
The implication is that Musk is not relaying all the information tied to the emails, and somehow twisted the public image of the situation. It is worth noting that Musk claims Dorsey had no knowledge of the “Twitter Files” communications.
On Tuesday, Musk fired Deputy General Counsel Jim Baker for reportedly reading the release of the “Twitter Files” before they were set to be released. Musk tweeted “in light of concerns about Baker’s possible role in suppression of information important to the public dialogue.”
Taibbi further explained Baker’s position and involvement with the “Twitter Files” writing, “Baker is a controversial figure. He has been something of a Zelig of FBI controversies dating back to 2016, from the Steele Dossier to the Alfa-Server mess. He resigned in 2018 after an investigation into leaks to the press.”
“The news that Baker was reviewing the ‘Twitter files’ surprised everyone involved, to say the least. New Twitter chief Elon Musk acted quickly to ‘exit’ Baker Tuesday,” he continued.
