Fresh off convincing Twitter to sell him the company for $44 billion, Elon Musk commented on a post about a Politico report on Twitter's top lawyer, whose team decides how to moderate content, crying while trying to reassure staff amid the takeover. Notably, Musk has entered the chat about censorship of the laptop believed to have belonged to Hunter Biden. "Suspending the Twitter account of a major news organization for publishing a truthful story was obviously incredibly inappropriate," the billionaire tech mogul wrote in a Tuesday tweet. [tweet_embed] April 27, 2022[/tweet_embed] He was responding to a tweet by a reporter who called the lawyer, Vijaya Gadde, the "top censorship advocate at Twitter who famously gaslit the world on Joe Rogan's podcast and censored the Hunter Biden laptop story." The tweet was an apparent reference to a 2019 interview in which Gadde rejected the notion that Twitter unfairly policed people based on ideology. Details concerning Biden's business dealings and personal life have surfaced in the media thanks to copies of a laptop and hard drive. The FBI took possession of the actual hardware after the owner, presumed to be Biden, left it for repairs at a shop in Delaware in April 2019 and never returned. Copies were created and spread across the media landscape, and the New York Post led the charge in reporting on the contents of the laptop that is believed to have belonged to the president's son.

When the New York Post tried to post the articles on its Twitter account, the social media company proclaimed it violated its rule against sharing "hacked" materials. In fact, Twitter and Facebook limited users from sharing it for some time. Twitter locked the New York Post out of its account Oct. 14, 2020, in a standoff that lasted roughly two weeks. In recent months, the New York Times and Politico have come forth with reports confirming at least some of the contents on the laptop have been authenticated. Twitter co-founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey has characterized the New York Post lockout a "mistake."

The president has never publicly denied that the laptop belonged to him but has insisted he is "100% certain" he will be cleared of wrongdoing.
