“We are writing to express our continued concern with the conduct of your administration and federal agencies and to request documents and information regarding these reports.”
“Twitter staff have taken multiple meetings with senior Biden administration officials regarding the platform’s conservative user speech. This information suggests that a particular conservative individual was targeted by White House officials, that Twitter staff knew they were under pressure from a White House official, and that the individual’s censorship followed a conversation between a White House official and Twitter.
“These facts raise serious questions about your administration’s and executive agencies’ pressure on companies to increase censorship and prevent these companies from censoring speech prohibited under the First Amendment.”
