Twitter has made an enemy of The New York Post, and they may regret the day they ever decided to cross one of the most powerful media companies in the Big Apple. When they decided to censor the Post’s reporting on Hunter Biden’s emails, lock the Post’s Twitter account, and declare themselves the arbiter of what constitutes good reporting, Twitter officially made themselves part of the #Resistance. And now they will be treated as such by Republicans in Congress, and, of course, the New York Post itself.
Fortunately for the intrepid reporters at the Post, exposing Twitter as an anti-Trump institution doesn’t take a lot of hard work. Indeed, just collecting posts written by the employees themselves is more than enough to prove the point.
“Twitter’s senior executives have a long history of anti-Trump hatred, a Post review of dozens of accounts of top employees found,” they reported this weekend. “The venom, vitriol and, in some cases, vows to help Joe Biden across the finish line in next month’s presidential election continue to live online as the company earlier this week decided to censor The New York Post’s revelations about Hunter Biden’s emails to a consultant for the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.”
Here are some of the tweets they found. Keep in mind, these are all written by high-level Twitter execs – not interns or junior employees. These are the people running the show, and here is what they think about the president and the election.
“GET HIM OUT,” one posted in August. “What a f–king baboon.”
“One manager with almost nine years on the job said he was quite keen to watch Biden ‘crush [Trump] in the election’ and that he hoped the president would ‘be utterly humiliated while also suffering greatly from #COVID19.’ In another post he fantasized about the president being put on a ventilator,” reported the Post.
Another employee – an engineering manager with the social media site – said that he wants Trump to “die in a fire.”
“None of these comments have ever been flagged by Twitter or been subject to any other form of official sanction, even as the social-media giant dishes out discipline to others for sharing legitimate news stories that might hurt Biden,” noted the Post.
