Elon Musk Says 'Most Important Data' Was Hidden From Jack Dorsey Ahead Of Twitter Files 2.0 Release

Twitter CEO Elon Musk said that the second tranche of the company’s internal documents will be made public on Thursday.

What Happened: Musk said that they will need “another day or so” to make the so-called “Twitter Files” public.

Jack Dorsey, the co-founder and former CEO of Twitter, responded to Musk and said “If the goal is transparency to build trust, why not just release everything without filter and let people judge for themselves?” He added, “Make everything public now.”

In return, Musk said, “Most important data was hidden (from you too) and some may have been deleted, but everything we find will be released.”

Why It Matters: Twitter’s internal documents are being released through journalists Matt Taibbi and Bari Weiss.

Taibbi said this week that he and Weiss encountered “obstacles” to new searches of the documents when they discovered the person releasing the files was Jim Baker, a former FBI lawyer, who was also Twitter’s Deputy General Counsel.

Musk said that in light of concerns about Baker’s “possible role in suppression of information important to the public dialogue” he was “exited” from the company.

The first batch of files indicated that materials were removed from Twitter in connection with a New York Post story on President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, without informing Dorsey.
