A former high-ranking employee of Twitter has admitted that the Hunter Biden laptop story should not have been censored.
Yoel Roth, Twitter's former safety chief, said that the platform censored the New York Post story about the first son due to its inability to confirm it.
Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta and Roth, revealed that the FBI asked them to conceal the details of the first son's background before the presidential election in 2020.
According to Yoel Roth, who used to be the head of Twitter's safety division, the story about the former Vice President's private laptop should have been kept on the Internet.
Just days after Elon Musk claimed that he would unveil internal Twitter documents that would prove how the platform was able to influence the presidential election, this revelation came out.
