Elon Musk has responded to a tweet that referenced Twitter’s 2020 ban of the New York Post for sharing the Hunter Biden laptop bombshell; Musk says it was “obviously incredibly inappropriate.”
“Musk, who is set to buy the social media platform, wrote his opinion Tuesday evening in response to reporter Saagar Enjeti, who tweeted a Politico article about how the social media company’s top lawyer was brought to tears when discussing its new ownership,” the Post reported.
“Vijaya Gadde, the top censorship advocate at Twitter who famously gaslit the world on Joe Rogan’s podcast and censored the Hunter Biden laptop story, is very upset about the @elonmusk takeover,” Enjeti wrote.
“Suspending the Twitter account of a major news organization for publishing a truthful story was obviously incredibly inappropriate,” Musk replied.
Twitter originally censored the story for “content obtained through hacking that contains private information.”
“The images contained in the articles include personal and private information — like email addresses and phone numbers — which violate our rules,” the company tweeted about the article at the time.
