In this latest release of the Twitter Files, reporter Matt Taibbi revealed how the State Department attempted to go to the media with information about suspect Twitter accounts. Twitter executives were under pressure from the fledgling analytic/intelligence arms of the State Department to follow their requests.
By 2020, Twitter executives were facing the problem of public and private agencies going straight to the media with lists of suspicious accounts from Twitter. In February of that year, as COVID was breaking out, the Global Engagement Center (GEC), an intelligence arm of the State Department went to the media with a report called “Russian Disinformation Apparatus Taking Advantage of Coronavirus Concerns.”
The GEC had flagged accounts that were saying that the Coronavirus was an engineered bioweapon. As well as accounts blaming the Wuhan Institute for the research conducted there and the CIA for the appearance of the virus.
