In the latest installment of the “Twitter Files”, independent journalist Matt Taibbi shows how the FBI worked hand-in-glove with Twitter to censor accounts, often citing “election security” concerns.

The previous installment, released by former New York Times journalist Bari Weiss, showed the company’s internal communications as they essentially made up reasons to ban President Trump.

In part six of the Twitter Files, Taibbi cites numerous examples where the FBI reached out to moderators and executives at Twitter to get posts taken down.

Some of the posts, such as a post where a poll worker claimed that they would not count someone’s vote if they were not wearing a mask, were obvious satire.

Other requests targeted high-profile conservative accounts such as the Right Side Broadcasting Network.

In the vast majority of instances, Twitter complied with the FBI’s requests to take down posts.

Substack writer Matt Taibbi dropped his latest installment of the “Twitter Files” on Friday that detailed the FBI’s ties with the tech giant.

“The #TwitterFiles are revealing more every day about how the government collects, analyzes, and flags your social media content. Twitter’s contact with the FBI was constant and pervasive, as if it were a subsidiary,” Taibbi began the thread on Friday. “Between January 2020 and November 2022, there were over 150 emails between the FBI and former Twitter Trust and Safety chief Yoel Roth… a surprisingly high number are requests by the FBI for Twitter to take action on election misinformation, even involving joke tweets from low-follower accounts.”

In response to the “Twitter Files,” a spokesperson for the FBI told Fox News Digital, “The FBI regularly engages with private sector entities to provide information specific to identified foreign malign influence actors’ subversive, undeclared, covert, or criminal activities.
