“TwitterFiles2” Propaganda Accidentally Confirms Everything 🚨
I was banned for political reasons. Twitter has always been an “info weapon”.
Elon Musk spent $44 billion to capture territory on the information battlefield for a conspiracy of fascists, anarchists and theocrats who want to eliminate global liberal democracy.
Musk is a psychopath who has rapidly converted his purchase of what he considered an “info weapon” into a radicalization pipeline that has successfully moved the Overton Window all the way to Nazis. Hitler worship is now a “point of view” on Twitter. But Musk’s impetuousness and rank stupidity in how he has taken over the platform has also revealed more than he wanted.
“#TwitterFiles2” is the follow up to Musk’s embarrassing effort to use internal Twitter emails to prove bias against “the right.”
Musk wants to accelerate the destruction of the “woke left” to pave the way for a world controlled by dictators, including himself. He believes this is justified because it will make things more efficient in his project to move humanity to Mars — which he believes is best for the “long term” of humanity.
This misanthropic bias shows through everything he does and his latest escapade using “intellectual dark web” propagandist Bari Weiss is no exception.
“TWITTER’S SECRET BLACKLISTS.” 🙄
Weiss’s thread is in fact revealing, but it is for the precise opposite reasons than Musk is desperately trying to twist out of the scant evidence provided.
For example, this exchange is pure theater. A completely false characterization of what happened, even seen through the warped lens of hired propagandist Bari Weiss.
First of all, Chaya Raichik, who runs “Libs of TikTok” is a despicable transphobic bigot who has targeted numerous people, put them in physical danger, and traumatized millions of people with her hate. She is the poster child for the normalization of GamerGate-like trolling and targeting at scale, which makes this deceptive performance even more harmful.
It also proves, beyond any doubt, that I was personally targeted by the top level of Twitter for elimination and that they knowingly cooperated with targeted harassment by trolls on their platform in order to do so.
Bari Weiss was given a Twitter laptop with a Twitter console — providing her access to internal Twitter tools and everyone’s personal information, including email, phone, and DMs. She put some screenshots of this console in her thread which includes a number of attributes like “Recent Abuse Strike” and “High Profile,” and various tools for “moderating“ the account.
This is a “flag” on “Libs of TikTok” which requires going through “SIP-PES” — which was the executive team at Twitter at the time including Jack Dorsey, Vijaya Gadde, Yoel Roth, and Parag Agarwal — before taking action on the account. Note “Recent Abuse Strike” and “Strike Count: 2”.
When I was targeted by hundreds of trolls and banned by Twitter on January 11, 2022, for the third time despite never breaking any rules, I was personally devastated. It caused me great harm, not just because I lost communication with 60,000 followers, but because I was being psychologically tortured in the aftermath.
The section of my Substack, Trolls and Miscreants, covers this in detail. In the process of confronting Twitter and the people harassing me, I was able to call in a favor or two. A friend of mine got hold of someone mid-level at Twitter Safety, personally vouched for me and asked that they reinstate me. After an initial reply that it wouldn’t be a problem, my friend received a response back that included:
“there may be some internal things that were flagged that might require some additional work”
I was flagged in the same way “Libs of TikTok” was, except in my case the answer came back to permanently ban me even though I broke no rules. And in the case of Chaya Raichik, it was to make sure that she wasn’t banned despite breaking nearly every rule on the platform. Targeting, coordinated harassment, hate speech, abuse. Chaya Raichik does that for a living.
Why the difference in treatment? The first time I was banned, in November 2021, it was for calling Joe Rogan “Steve Bannon’s gimp.” This is the Joe Rogan Show. Two of these people were on “SIP-PES.”
One of the last tweets I made, just before being banned for the third time:
For the record, here is my Twitter feed exactly how it was before I was banned.
Compare it to “Libs of TikTok.”
Elon Musk is apparently not happy with just Twitter to silence and psyop people. Looks like he’s trying to capture this territory as well — meaning the tiny bit of territory I’m writing on right now. He says he is “open to the idea” of buying Substack.
