Since taking the reins of Twitter in October, Elon Musk has endeared himself to the right and incensed the left with his laissez-faire approach to moderation.

Elon Musk is stoking controversy on a new front, this time revealing sensitive internal deliberations at Twitter around Hunter Biden’s personal computer files in the fall of 2020.

The internal company discussions, which predate Musk’s ownership, offer insight on the dissent and confusion inside Twitter as it responded to the New York Post’s reporting on Hunter Biden’s files in the closing weeks of the last presidential campaign.

Since taking the reins of Twitter in October, Musk has endeared himself to the right and incensed the left with his laissez-faire approach to moderation.

Hunter Biden’s leaked computer files — which shed light on his chaotic personal life and overseas business dealing — as well as Twitter’s handling of the leak have been the subjects of ongoing controversy for the past two years

Twitter initially blocked links to the New York Post’s reporting, going so far as to prevent users from sharing them in private messages, initially citing its policy on hacked and stolen materials, but reversed itself days later

When the Post refused to delete a tweet about the story, Twitter suspended the outlet’s account for more than two weeks, before reversing the suspension on October 30, 2020, long after it had lifted other restrictions on the story

In March, the New York Times reported that emails from the cache related to Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings had been authenticated by people familiar with them

House Republicans, who tweeted an homage to Musk in October, are planning to investigate Hunter Biden’s business dealings when they take over the chamber next month
