LETTER TEXT 

Mr. Jack Dorsey

CEO, Twitter

1355 Market Street Suite 900

San Francisco, CA 94103

 

Dear Mr. Dorsey,

 

Recently, Rogan O’Handley’s lawsuit against former California Secretary of State and current Senator Alex Padilla has revealed collusion between the state government of California and Twitter.

 

It is alleged that in the months leading up to the 2020 election and in the months following it, Twitter and the California Office of Election Cybersecurity operated as an Orwellian Ministry of Truth, collaborating to censor and remove tweets from Republicans deemed by the office to be at odds with the talking points of the Democratic Party.

 

Along with millions of Americans, I am deeply concerned that collusion between the gatekeepers of information and the Democrat political machine threatens our election integrity and undermines our democracy.

 

Thus, I am calling on Twitter to release all correspondence and requests they have approved to delete political tweets.

 

Sincerely, 

 

Matt Gaetz

Member of Congress
