Twitter’s new owner, Elon Musk, heralded the release of exclusive emails that show some of the internal discussions at the social media company over a controversial decision taken in 2020, before the US Presidential elections, to censor a story by the tabloid New York Post about the information it had obtained from a laptop purportedly owned by Hunter Biden, the son of US President Joe Biden.

The revelations dubbed the “Twitter Files,” were billed as a bombshell. “This will be awesome,” Musk had tweeted, teasing the announcement with a popcorn emoji. The details were later shared by Substack writer Matt Taibbi in a tweet thread, who said he had to “agree to some conditions” to obtain the emails.

Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has finally responded to the release of Twitter files, requesting that Elon Musk, the new CEO, “reveal everything now.”In response to Musk’s tweet in the upcoming Episode 2 of The Twitter Files, Dorsey tweeted asking to release all information without filtering it. “If the goal is to build trust through transparency, one possible approach would be to release all information without filtering it, allowing people to judge for themselves.” “This would include making all discussions about current and future actions public,” tweeted the former chief.

Dorsey, who stepped down as Twitter’s CEO last year and left its board of directors in May, claimed that by providing unrestricted access to all the information, people would be able to see everything for themselves and make their judgments.

Last week, Musk released “Twitter Files: Part One,” which revealed how the Hunter Biden-Laptop story was censored by the social media platform during the last week of the 2020 US Presidential elections. The release offered fragments of the details to show how the social media platform suppressed “free speech,” besides revealing some controversial internal conversations between former Twitter executives.

Musk announced on Tuesday that he had fired Deputy General Counsel Jim Baker “in light of concerns about Baker’s possible role in the suppression of information important to the public dialogue.” And when asked by a Twitter user if Baker was able to explain himself, Musk replied, “His explanation was… unconvincing.” The published files alleged that the previous Twitter management took steps to suppress reporting regarding Hunter Biden’s laptop ahead of the 2020 US Presidential Election.
