Elon Dishes More on the Possible Deletion of Twitter Files

When Matt Taibbi and Elon Musk revealed that Twitter counsel James Baker had been fired for vetting the Twitter files without the knowledge of management, that left open a big question: Were things deleted in the process before Musk and Taibbi saw them and the first files were released?


Musk had previously made this comment about the question.

He also posted this:

But now he’s added some more to that comment about the “suppression.”

Jack Dorsey, the former Twitter CEO urged Musk to release all the Twitter files en masse without any story-telling or intermediary.

“If the goal is transparency to build trust,” Dorsey said, “Why not just release everything without filter and let people judge for themselves? Including all discussions around current and future actions? Make everything public now. #TwitterFiles.”


That’s a bit funny, given that, as CEO, Jack could have released the information and he was around when a lot of the banning and suppression was going on.

Musk’s response was interesting.

“Most important data was hidden (from you too),” Musk said. “And some may have been deleted, but everything we find will be released.” So he’s acknowledging some of it might have been deleted and interestingly, noting things were hidden from Jack as well. That’s a big commitment to transparency and that’s going to make some of the powers that be lose their minds.

Now we can see why Musk also announced that he was “not suicidal.”

But remember if it’s on the internet, the internet is forever. Can anything that was deleted be recovered? Depending on what was done, sounds like it could be.


So if someone deleted things, but they can still be recovered and it can be shown they were deleted, the “coverup of the coverup” isn’t going to end well.
