Last night, Twitter users watched as history was made and Elon Musk pulled back the curtain to show us all what the Biden team did with the Hunter Biden laptop story to protect him during the 2020 election. Regardless of your party or leanings, this is a big deal.
It just is.
Forget that Biden wasn’t president yet, the number of people working inside the government to get him elected (not to mention the former intelligence officials who wrote a freakin’ LETTER saying the entire thing was Russian disinformation), that Twitter not only worked with the campaign but found a violation to use AFTER they’d suppressed the story to help Biden… no words for how corrupt that is.
Twitter acting by itself to suppress free speech is not a 1st amendment violation, but acting under orders from the government to suppress free speech, with no judicial review, is

The Expert™ Tom Nichols had to chime in since he’s a ‘certified political scientist’ and stuff.
Hi. As a certified political scientist, I can assure you that Joe Biden was not in charge of the US government in 2020. That was actually Donald Trump. Let me know if I can help with any questions. https://t.co/siFi8FVmLi

Well, as a certified snarkologist, this editor can assure you all that Tom is full of it.
Completely and totally.
Hi. As a ‘certified political scientist’, you should know that while Biden may not have been part of the fed gvt in 2020, there were many elected Democrats involved in ‘asking’ Twitter to remove (ergo censor) tweets they did not like.

So you admit (unwittingly) that Twitter was colluding with the Biden campaign to help them win the election and remove Trump from office?

What about the fact that Fang Banger @ericswalwell was getting people suspended because they were mocking his on air flatulence and he was crying it was a “threat to his Democracy”?

“There’s no emails from Joe Biden himself, so this is a nothingburger.”
Is this really the take you guys are running with?

They’re also claiming this whole thing was ‘revenge porn.’
Ah, so you’re a CERTIFIED political scientist, who also ‘writes’ for The Atlantic. Sir, have you no shame?

Oh you’re certifiable for sure.
Certified? I have a Bachelor’s in Poly Sci. Is that what you mean by certified?

Hi, I have a question: is Taiwan a country? Y/N?

HA HA HA HA HA
His certification doesn’t cover that.
Right Tom, there were no Democrats in the government in 2020.
Also, the president is not “in charge of the US government.”

As a certified political scientist I can assure you the government includes elected members of congress and private companies acting at the behest of the government not just the president to suppress speech it doesn’t like is indeed a violation of the 1A. Glad I could help.
