Twitter Files: bombshell documents

Published

Hunter Biden will be top target of GOP investigators in the next Congress

Twitter CEO Elon Musk has made released recently recovered documents that reportedly show how the social media platform covered up the Hunter Biden laptop story just weeks before the 2020 election.

Emails allegedly show staffers supporting dubious claims that the Hunter Biden story relied on hacked information even as other staffers expressed their own doubts.

Additionally, FBI officials allegedly met with Twitter employees weekly leading up to the 2020 election to discuss “hack-and-leak operations” regarding to Hunter Biden.

More than 50 former intelligence officials signed a letter in October 2020—shortly before the Presidential Election—expressing doubt on a New York Post story revealing the contents of a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden.

At the same time, Twitter blocked the New York Post’s report.

The laptop was Hunter Biden’s and now Republicans are promising investigations into the Biden family to determine if U.S. President Joe Biden is compromised or a national security threat due to the Biden’s overseas business dealings.

More emails show Twitter caving to the demands of political operatives across the spectrum and ultimately deciding what users were allowed to see.

“This was a cover-up at the highest levels of the government to protect Joe Biden,” Rep. James Comer a Republican from Kentucky said. “Let’s remember what they’re protecting here. They’re protecting the laptop and the contents of the laptop, which show not only did Joe Biden know full well what his son and his brothers were doing with respect to influence peddling with our adversaries, it shows that Joe Biden was very involved with this effort, and this is something that should concern every American.”

TikTok implements stricter guidelines on weight-loss drug promotion

Published

on

TikTok is tightening its regulations on influencers who promote weight-loss drugs like Ozempic.

With over 170 million users in the US, the app aims to prevent the spread of potentially harmful content related to rapid weight loss.

Starting in May, TikTok will prohibit influencers from posting “before-and-after” photos and restrict minors from accessing weight-loss content deemed risky. The crackdown extends to any content promoting drastic weight loss methods, aiming to combat the promotion of unrealistic body standards.

However, some influencers, like Dave Knapp and Kim Carlos, criticise the move, arguing it discriminates against those with health conditions. Others fear losing their income as TikTok takes down their content, prompting concerns about the platform’s future amid potential US bans.

As TikTok enforces stricter guidelines, influencers may seek alternative platforms to share weight-loss content. Despite the popularity of drugs like Ozempic and Wegovy, the crackdown reflects growing concerns about the impact of such promotions on user health.
