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

Published

on

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.

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.
