‘It was a mistake’: Ex-Twitter safety chief FINALLY admits censoring Hunter Biden’s laptop story was a huge error – but claims it was because ‘we did not know what was true’

  • Yoel Roth, the former head of trust and safety at Twitter, said it was a mistake for the company to censor the 2020 Hunter Biden laptop story 
  • The story revealed Hunter’s private life and  controversial business ties to Ukraine in the run-up to his father’s presidential race against Donald Trump
  • Roth said the story set off ‘hack and leak’ alarms, but he did not believe it should have ever been censored 
  • He said the uncertainty over the story was ultimately what led to it being suppressed for 24 hours, a decision slammed by new Chief Twit Elon Musk 
  • Musk has vowed to release files detailing the company’s decision to censor the story as Roth and former CEO Jack Dorsey appear to have passed the buck
