Twitter chief Elon Musk has claimed the risk of his assassination is now ‘quite significant’ following release of the first installment of the ‘Twitter Files’ that focused on the Hunter Biden coverup
During a two-hour Q&A on Twitter Spaces, the worlds richest man said he would definitely not ‘be doing any open-air car parades, let me put it that way”. He also told his audience that he did not think about taking his own life: “If I killed myself, it wasn’t really me”
“Frankly the risk of something bad happening to me, or even literally being shot, is quite significant,” Musk said.
He then added “It’s not that hard to kill somebody if you wanted to, so hopefully they don’t, and fate smiles upon the situation with me and it does not happen … There’s definitely some risk there.”
The Mail Online reports: Musk’s comments came after Friday evening’s inaugural installment of what has been dubbed the Twitter Files – an unfettered inside look into corporate communications at Twitter over the last handful of years, including during some of the company’s most controversial moments.
Musk granted journalists Matt Taibbi and Bari Weiss full access to the delicate subject matter, which he said ultimately ‘might make sense to have…publicly available so that anyone can look at them.’
But for now, it is up to the chosen news professionals to analyze and release choice parts from the treasure trove.
Kicking things off Friday evening, Taibbi published a thread that provided insight into the suppression of the infamous Hunter Biden laptop story that the New York Post first published in October 2020, just before the last presidential election.
‘What you’re about to read is the first installment in a series, based upon thousands of internal documents obtained by sources at Twitter,’ wrote Taibbi. ‘The Twitter Files, Part One: How and Why Twitter Blocked the Hunter Biden Laptop Story.’
The emails contained back-and-forths between various members of Twitter’s content moderation team that ultimately led to the shaky decision to ban the story without consulting co-founder and then-CEO, Jack Dorsey.
