Washington Post: Some conservatives see “Twitterfiles” as a dud. “It’s not really the smoking gun we’d hoped for,”

This Washington Post article on “Twittergate” is very good:
The Twitter thread, based on internal communications posted by Substack writer Matt Taibbi, showed the company independently decided to limit the spread of the article, without Democratic politicians, the Biden campaign or FBI exerting control over the social media network. In fact, the only input from a sitting politician that Taibbi noted was from Silicon Valley Rep. Ro Khanna (D), who told Twitter executives they should distribute the story, regardless of the potential consequences for his party.
Disappointed conservatives:
But the thread left even some of Twitter’s critics wanting more.“Look, I think we’ve seen quite a bit that’s useful. It’s not really the smoking gun we’d hoped for,” said New York Post columnist Miranda Devine on Carlson’s show. She claimed without evidence that Musk “held back some material.”“So far I’m deeply underwhelmed,” tweeted Sebastian Gorka, a former deputy assistant to Trump.

The Washington post noted nobody collided with Twitter. making claims in a message board isn’t going to make a TwitterGate a thing.
Correction. Making posts on a message board isn’t going to make TwitterGate go away. :itsok:

In a Republic, actually
Fool, do you REALLY expect WaPo to accurately cover this story? A story they may eventually be implicated in? OF COURSE they would tell you its a nothingburger.

TwitterGate is H U G E

Yet another rightwing lie debunked.

He was pretending not to have read that paragraph. That's what they do: Pretend and yell fake news.

Now a resident of a Red state! Hallelujah!
When the idiot OP and the pussy Washington Compost try to denigrate and belittle this story, you know it is worthy of additional investigation and discussion.

LOL Feds were meeting with Social media to censor stories and ban accounts.

“Nothing to see here!” is your response.

Maybe your brain collided with Twitter! :laughing0301:

making claims in a message board isn’t going to make a TwitterGate a thing.
Too bad because TwitterGate just ROCKED the Left's world. Worlds just collided for the Bidens, the intelligence agencies and DNC, a bunch of GOP, for the Obummas and many of the biggest social media, news outlets and several other things! 💣 🔥

The emperor has no robes and the bleeding and damage in Washington DC will be incalculable.

Looks like Joe is gonna have to start another war now or something to give the MSM something else to print on their front pages!
