Twitter Files reveal that several mysterious federal agencies worked with platform to suppress content

There can be no doubt at this point that the various social media giants are not really “free speech” platforms or even “private companies” but front organizations for the deep state to control narratives and spread propaganda and disinformation.

So it’s no wonder that the ‘professional political class’ and the elite media hate billionaire Elon Musk and are trying to destroy his reputation and his companies: He’s been releasing one file after another through investigative journalists exposing the corrupt interaction between Twitter and various mysterious federal agencies.

According to The Epoch Times this week, “Mysterious government agencies were involved in censoring content along with Twitter Inc. on the social media platform, journalist Matt Taibbi said in newly-released Twitter Files.”

The outlet added: “The files—which mostly were internal communications among Twitter executives and employees—show that unspecified agencies worked with Twitter before Elon Musk bought the company.”

The report stated that the internal communications noted that platform officials would refer to them as “Other Government Agencies,” or OGA, within the platform itself.

In an email dated June 29, 2020, FBI San Francisco Field Office official Elvis Chan asked Twitter executives if it was okay to ask an “OGA” to attend an event that was planned.

“I wanted to follow up to see if I could forward this invitation to an OGA?” he queried.

In addition, according to the latest files dump, “OGA Briefing” is frequently seen mentioned in meetings between the platform’s officials and the Foreign Influence Task Force, or TITF. In one meeting, that reference was made under the “Russia Status” agenda.

It’s not clear which agency or agencies fell under ‘OGA,’ but — unsurprisingly — journalist Matt Taibbi, who posted the latest file dump, said sources told him the CIA was certainly one of them.

That said, Taibbi shared tweets with messages indicating that the FBI and CIA often joined in meetings with Twitter officials, most of the time to get content censored.

“Email after email came from the San Francisco office heading into the election, often adorned with an Excel attachment,” he wrote. “There were so many government requests, Twitter employees had to improvise a system for prioritizing/triaging them.”

An earlier massive drop of internal Twitter communications revealed evidence that under old management, the platform was a tool of the far-left authoritarian deep state weaponized against right-thinking conservative points of view.

The drop was revealed by another investigative journalist, Bari Weiss after receiving the information from platform boss Musk.


“Twitter is working on a software update that will show your true account status, so you know clearly if you’ve been shadowbanned, the reason why and how to appeal,” Musk tweeted ahead of the data dump.

He also said Twitter will “start freeing the name space of 1.5 billion accounts” in the near future, noting further: “These are obvious account deletions with no tweets & no log in for years.”

“Twitter once had a mission ‘to give everyone the power to create and share ideas and information instantly, without barriers.’ Along the way, barriers nevertheless were erected,” Weiss wrote. She pointed to Stanford University’s Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, a longstanding opponent of COVID groupthink during the pandemic, expressing opposition to lockdowns.

“Twitter secretly placed him on a ‘Trends Blacklist,’ which prevented his tweets from trending,” Weiss continued, going on to report that Fox News host Dan Bongino was placed on a “Search Blacklist” and had Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk on “Do Not Amplify.”
