Twitter boss Elon Musk has revealed that the “most important data” from the social media platform’s internal communications on free speech suppression, known as the “Twitter Files,” was hidden and some may even have been deleted.

Musk made the remark in a Dec. 7 tweet, in response to former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s question as to why the Twitter Files were being dropped in installments instead of being released in their entirety.

“If the goal is transparency to build trust, why not just release everything without filter and let people judge for themselves? Including all discussions around current and future actions? Make everything public now,” Dorsey said in a post on Twitter.

Dorsey was responding to a series of comments by Musk, in which the Tesla CEO told his followers to brace for an upcoming release of “Episode 2 of The Twitter Files.”

Musk reacted to Dorsey’s remarks by saying that key data had been hidden and possibly scrubbed.

“Most important data was hidden (from you too) and some may have been deleted, but everything we find will be released,” Musk said.

The exchange between Twitter’s current and former bosses comes hot on the heels of news that Musk apparently fired Twitter’s former deputy counsel James Baker, possibly for the alleged role he played in suppressing a Hunter Biden laptop story.

Investigative reporter Matt Taibbi, who with Musk’s endorsement posted the first episode of the “Twitter Files” on the platform on Dec. 2, suggested that the holdup with releasing the subsequent part of the disclosures had something to do with Baker’s role in “vetting” the first batch without the knowledge of Twitter’s current management.

‘Free Speech Suppression’

Musk first teased the disclosure of Twitter’s internal files on what he described as the company’s “free speech suppression” at the end of November.
