On the same day that Taibbi released the ‘Twitter Files’, which show that US government officials colluded with Twitter to suppress stories reporting on the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop in the leadup to the 2020 election, Twitter owner Elon Musk admitted that Twitter may have interfered in the recent Brazilian election as well.

Left-wing candidate Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva beat incumbent Jair Bolsonaro by a narrow margin of just 1.8% in late October to become Brazil’s next President.

Many have alleged that Twitter banned accounts that supported Bolsonaro and boosted accounts and stories that were favorable to left-wing candidates in Brazil.

After the ‘Twitter Files’ were released that showed that the US government colluded with Twitter to interfere in the 2020 election, Twitter users asked Musk to look in to what other elections Twitter may have interfered with.

Musk said that he was currently looking in to claims that Twitter interfered in the Brazilian election.
