Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) has written a letter to Elon Musk asking him to “open the books” on the social media giant’s censorship and banning practices. Hawley is particularly interested in how they buried the Hunter Biden laptop story.
Hawley says “make it all public” and asks for the following:
Who was responsible for deliberately suppressing the New York Post‘s now-vindicated reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop and business dealings?
How many Twitter users have had their accounts suspended, and why?
How many Twitter users have been shadowbanned, and why?
Do Twitter’s shadowbanning and suspension patterns evince a consistent political bias?
Have Twitter employees, since news of your acquisition of the platform became public, made changes to the platform or deleted records of their time at the service?
Hawley shared the letter to Musk on Twitter with the following message:
“Here’s an idea for @elonmusk. Open the books on who Twitter has shadow banned, who Twitter has suspended, who they’ve throttled, and who was responsible for the egregious censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop reporting. Make it all public”
