Twitter Files: Jack Dorsey urges Elon Musk to ‘release everything without filter’

Published

The fallout continues as Elon Musk keeps pursuing transparency

Ex-Twitter boss Jack Dorsey is calling on the new CEO Elon Musk to make all the ‘Twitter files’ public.

The move comes after the company’s former deputy general counsel James Baker was fired for his role in suppressing the Hunter Biden laptop story.

Baker is accused of being part of a ‘deep state’ at the social media platform and sabotaging or obstructing the recent efforts by Musk in releasing information to the public.

Twitter’s former deputy general counsel James Baker is also former counsel to FBI director James Comey.

The situation allegedly came to Musk’s attention on Tuesday after revelations that Baker was delaying the release of files showing government collusion with Twitter to journalists Matt Taibbi and Bari Weiss.

In a Tuesday thread Taibbi wrote, “On Friday, the first installment of the Twitter files was published here. We expected to publish more over the weekend. Many wondered why there was a delay.”

“We can now tell you part of the reason why. On Tuesday, Twitter Deputy General Counsel (and former FBI General Counsel) Jim Baker was fired. Among the reasons? Vetting the first batch of ‘Twitter Files’ — without knowledge of new management.”

Ohio Republican Congressman Jim Jordan promised investigations into this and other Big Tech firms colluding with government officials to suppress information.

“I am very concerned about the government influencing big tech in this collusion we now see big tech, big media, big government all working to keep information from with the people,” Jordan said.

When asked about this story during the White House daily press briefing, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said she will not comment of things that happened during U.S. President Joe Biden’s presidential election.

Artificial Intelligence has become an increasingly powerful and pervasive force in our modern world.

 
Artificial intelligence is not a new concept. However, the growing advancements have the potential to revolutionise industries, improve efficiency, and enhance the quality of life.

Along with its promising advancements, artificial intelligence also brings certain risks and challenges that must be acknowledged and addressed.

It has become the focus of lawmakers, who are working towards greater regulation of the sector.

U.S. and European Union officials recently met in Sweden to weigh up the benefits and challenges of artificial intelligence, and other emerging technologies.

“The AI process is creeping up on us,” said Dr Keith Suter, who is a global futurist.

“You’ve got competition between companies.”

It’s almost like some of us can see this raft that’s heading towards the rapids and a disappearance towards the waterfall, and we’re giving a warning but it’s not being heeded because everybody’s in this race to get down to the river,” Dr Suter said.
