Human Events Daily host Jack Posobiec highlighted the revelation that Twitter, one of the world’s largest social media networks and dictator of how millions receive their breaking news, has been infiltrated by agents of the Chinese Communist Party.
Posobiec’s comments came after the testimony of Twitter whistleblower Peiter Zatko , whose comments were immediately dismissed by a spokesperson at the site as being filled with “inconsistencies and inaccuracies,” according to CNN .
Zatko said that he had been told that “because the corporate security physical security team had been contacted and told that there was at least one agent of the MSS, which is one of China’s intelligence services, on the payroll inside Twitter. While it was disturbing to hear, I and many others, recognising the state of the environment at Twitter, were really thinking if you are not placing foreign agents inside Twitter - because it’s very difficult to detect them … it is very valuable to a foreign agent to be inside there - as a foreign intelligence company, you’re most likely not doing your job.”
“Twitter whistleblower testified today inside the United States Senate, but concurrently, the shareholders of Twitter took a vote and have approved the buyout deal from Elon Musk,” Posobiec began, noting that Musk is hoping to use that Twitter whistleblower’s testimony to get out of “the very deal that was just approved on the same day by the shareholders. I know, right? High political and legal drama.”
“So, what do we know though, put the Elon Musk stuff to the side. We need to discuss what this whistleblower said, so put the Elon Musk stuff to the side. Everything we thought was going on behind the scenes of Twitter, as bad as we thought it was, is a thousand times worse. Why is this? They’re confirming CCP infiltration inside the platform of Twitter, and at the same time, Reuters has a huge piece out today stating unoquivocally that Twitter was taking money hand over fist from the Chinese government directly,” said Posobiec.
Reuters reported on Tuesday that a review of publicly available government tenders, budget documents and promoted tweets from 2020 to 2022 “shows local government authorities and Chinese Communist Party propaganda offices for cities, provinces and even districts across the country have flocked to Twitter to buy ads.”
The Reuters report continues: “… Among other claims [by Zatko], his 84-page complaint alleged “Twitter executives knew that accepting Chinese money risked endangering users in China,” and that “Mr Zatko was told that Twitter was too dependent upon the revenue stream at this point to do anything other than attempt to increase it.” Reuters could not independently verify the claims.”
Posobiec continued: “That they made an exemption for state-run media, if it had to do with cultural or tourist activity. Well guess what the CCP did, they walked right up and they were funding Twitter to the hilt. You need to understand this, Twitter as an operation is floated by the CCP. Their agents, their actual intelligence operatives are inside the Twitter platform.”
