Elon Musk says Twitter meddled in elections

Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk said Twitter meddled in elections prior to his purchase and promised it would become more centered under his leadership.

Musk made the claim Wednesday when responding to an article that quoted Twitter’s former head of trust and security as saying the platform would not be more secure after buying the company.

“The obvious reality, as long-time users know, is that Twitter has long failed to trust and security and has meddled in elections.” Musk tweeted.

“Twitter 2.0 will be much more effective, transparent and fair,” he added.

Musk’s admission confirms years of right-wing accusations against the social media platform that Twitter was unfairly selective in enforcing the terms of service.

The tweet received over 60,000 likes.

Musk previously said he would disclose some of the internal discussions that led to the decision to censor the New York Post story about Hunter Biden’s laptop just before the 2020 election. Mainstream media officials said that uncertainty about its veracity justified stopping the story from spreading, but critics accused them of trying to protect then-candidate Joe Biden, who later won the presidency.

“This is necessary to restore public confidence,” Musk said of the disclosure of Twitter’s internal documents.

A statement from a Twitter employee said the story’s distribution has been restricted due to breaches of the platform’s hacked information policy.

“In accordance with our policy on hacked materials, as well as our URL blocking approach, we are taking steps to block any links to or images of the material in question on Twitter,” the company told the Post.

Musk bought the popular social media platform for $44 billion after months of litigation.
