Trump suggested that the contents of the leak warranted a complete election re-do or simply a coup in which he would be installed as president.


On Friday evening, author Matt Taibbi posted a thread of dozens of tweets that he titled “THE TWITTER FILES,” alleging that his story offered bombshell revelations about free speech on Twitter.

Twitter’s new overlord, the billionaire Elon Musk, had teased and hyped the thread with popcorn emojis in the hours before, writing, “This will be awesome.”.

While some reacted as if this amounted to collusion, the tweets in question contained nude photos of the president’s son taken from his laptop. »
