Twitter’s Ex-Safety Chief Finally Comes Clean About Screwing Trump, Admits It Was Mistake To Censor Hunter Biden Story: “It didn’t reach a place where I was comfortable removing this content from Twitter”

The former Twitter executive and safety chief came clean and admitted screwing former President Trump and censoring the Hunter Biden laptop story was a mistake. Yoel Roth, who was Twitter’s head of trust and safety until he quit after Musk’s purchase told Kara Swisher in an interview the company blew it when they restricted people from sharing the bombshell story.

Roth also denied he was responsible for the decision. “It’s widely reported that I personally directed the suppression of the Hunter Biden story. That is not true. It is absolutely, unequivocally untrue.

“We didn’t know what to believe, we didn’t know what was true, there was smoke — and ultimately for me, it didn’t reach a place where I was comfortable removing this content from Twitter.

“But it set off every single one of my finely tuned APT28 ‘hack and leak campaign’ alarm bells.”

Asked if it was a mistake for Twitter to have blocked the story, Roth said: 

“In my opinion, yes.”

“It went off the rails in exactly the ways that we anticipated,” Roth said about the since delayed rollout of the new verification system by Elon Musk.

Roth also defended Musk and said the two have a good relationship. Initially, Roth stayed on when Musk took over but he left after a few weeks.

When asked to give Musk some advice, Roth said:

“Humility goes a really long way,” he said.

Swisher excused the censorship on Twitter and inadvertently let the cat out of the bag when she said “They were on alert from what happened in 2016 and all the hacked emails and things.”

The 2016 disinformation and the Russia Facebook story were duds. Had no impact.

News organizations always run stories on big leaks and they would have run the story on the DNC hack and what it contained whether there were social media platforms or not.

But blaming Russia and ‘disinformation’ allowed the Dems to censor speech and control the narrative.

If you are a conservative or don’t follow the narrative, you get suppressed.

If you are a Dem or follow the narrative, you can literally say anything and will not get banned or suppressed. 

So when Trump dropped his October surprise, the Hunter Biden laptop the Dems, the media, The Dems, and the social platforms were ready to discredit the story before it could affect the election.

Hopefully, that will all change now that Musk owns Twitter.
