Matt Taibbi: 500-1,000 People from Multiple Government Agencies Involved in Twitter Censorship

‘I think the major revelation of the Twitter files so far is that we’ve discovered an elaborate bureaucracy of what you might call public-private censorship’

TAIBBI: "Right, because that foreign influence task force only refers to the people in the FBI, DHS and the Director of National Intelligence Office. But actually, this includes people in a variety of agencies, both federal and state. We’ve seen requests from basically all 50 states, most of those go through DHS to Twitter. So, I would estimate that personnel somewhere between 500-1,000 people. That's just based on what we’ve seen so far. It may be more than that."
