Twitter's former top censors had a rough day Tuesday as they appeared before the Republican-led House Oversight Committee to answer questions regarding their unbelievable, targeted censorship of several conservative politicians in previous elections, including Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) who called out and tore apart Twitter official Yoel Roth whom, at one point, had described Trump and his administration as "actual Nazis" on his personal Twitter account.
While there were numerous heated moments during the congressional hearing, one of the hottest came when Taylor Greene called out Twitter's former head of trust and safety, Yoel Roth, and accused him of election interference due to her personal Twitter account, which also served as her campaign account, was shut down ahead of the 2022 campaign.
Upon purchasing Twitter, new owner and CEO, Elon Musk, released the Twitter Files which outlined damning evidence that top Twitter officials had abused their power and used their positions to control the narrative about COVID and Hunter Biden's laptop, all while silencing and censoring conservatives on the platform. In November, after the release of the Twitter Files, Roth had complained that he had to flee his home in San Francisco claiming that he and his family were in danger due to the evidence released in the files.
Meanwhile, millions of conservative Americans were outraged to learn how top Twitter officials had used the platform to silence anti-COVID vaccine advocates and doctors who promoted the use of Ivermectin as a treatment for the virus. The same censorship happened to anyone who attempted to share information regarding Hunter Biden's laptop. Taylor Greene also informed the disgraced head of trust and safety that users were censored who questioned the accuracy of voting machines or the results of the 2020 election. However, Twitter permitted Democrats to question the 2016 election results without censorship or penalty.
Taylor Greene also tore into Roth for election interference when he banned her campaign account while simultaneously allowing child pornography to run rampant on Twitter. Citing an example from Roth's doctoral dissertation, titled "Gay Data," in which he argued that underage minors should have access to the adult male dating site Grindr.
Taylor Greene berated Roth during her time in the hearing fervently stating, "You permanently banned my account, but you allowed child porn all over Twitter!"
The congresswoman concluded her punishment of Roth by telling him that his "time was expired" when she was informed that her 5 minutes was up. Taylor Greene never gave Roth an opportunity to speak or explain himself during her allotted time as she told him and the other former Twitter officials, "You can consider your speech canceled during my time because you canceled mine."
