Twitter Files: Staffers felt Trump did not violate ‘incitement’ policy

Published

on

Elon Musk promises more files soon regarding Twitter’s handling of Covid-19.

Before Elon Musk bought Twitter it was apparently filled with people who were willing to target Americans for their beliefs—and it went all the way to the top.

The latest revelations expose executives having conversations about changing the platform to go after one single person: Donald J. Trump.

Among the revelations, behind the scenes conversations on what led to then-President Trump being banned by Twitter.

Released on Monday, the fifth installment of Musk’s “Twitter Files” shows that staffers believed written tweets by former President Trump about Jan. 6 did not actually violate its policies, despite the company publicly saying so.

According to the Twitter document dump, Twitter execs worked behind the scenes to further restrict speech and lay the foundation to eventually and permanently ban President Trump

According to reports of internal communication: one staffer wrote in a group message, “I think we’d have a hard time saying this is incitement,” wrote one official. “It’s pretty clear he’s saying the ‘American Patriots’ are the ones who voted for him and not the terrorists (we can call them that, right?) from [Jan. 6].”:

“Don’t see the incitement angle here,” a second monitor agreed, while policy official Annika Navroli concurred: “I also am not seeing clear or coded incitement in the DJT tweet.”
“I’ll respond in the elections channel and say that our team has assessed and found no [violations] for the DJT one.”

Now, a key Republican lawmaker, Michael Waltz of Florida is calling for the new Congress to do something.

“The laws haven’t been updated since the 90s. They absolutely have to be. Antitrust I know it’s controversial, but you are going to see major action in this next Congress we’ve got to clean this up.”

On Dec. 2, the Twitter Files began with revelations of internal efforts to suppress the New York Post’s Hunter Biden story in 2020 and now, Musk is promising to release more details on how Twitter handled Covid-19.

Why Australia is becoming the new home of the Hollywood blockbuster

Published

on

Australia’s multimillion-dollar campaign to attract Hollywood productions to its shores appears to be paying off.

The allure of Australia lies not only in its picturesque locations but also in its competitive financial incentives.

The government offers generous rebates and tax breaks to international productions, making it an attractive proposition for filmmakers looking to maximise their budgets.

Despite the recent intake of Hollywood productions down under such as ‘The Fall Guy’ and ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’, Aussie independents are still finding the space to carve their own creative path.

Rob Fantozzi joined the program to discuss the latest in Hollywood, and showcased his own upcoming project – ‘Omerta‘. #featured

American home prices are rising at faster pace now than in the last 20-years.

A recent analysis reveals a jaw dropping surge in the cost of American homes.

Since the start of 2020, U.S. home prices have surged 47% easily outstripping the gains seen in recent decades.

On top of that, home price growth so far this decade is on the verge of surpassing all the growth seen in the 2000s.

Many experts believe this decade’s housing market frenzy was ignited by a perfect storm — the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic triggering an unprecedented rush among buyers.

Tom Hutchens, the Executive Vice President of Production at Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions joins Veronica Dudo to discuss.
