Elon Musk turned over a bunch of internal documents to clown-show newsletter journalist Matt Taibbi last night, who promoted an interminable two-hour Twitter thread as “The Twitter Files.” Elon Musk, desperate to take attention away from the dramatic rise in hate speech on the platform, boasted it as a major scandal and First Amendment violation. However, the thread basically only revealed that Twitter moderation executives debated at length over the Hunter Biden story — as they should have — and also decided to remove pics of Hunter Biden’s penis from Twitter because they considered it a form of “revenge porn.” There was no First Amendment violation because there was no government involvement, as Biden was not President at the time. It was, as they say, a dud. A nothing burger. An absolute flop of a story. (The Verge)

For those who remember Matt Taibbi as a respectable journalist way back in the day, the precipitous fall of this man. Wow.

Okay, first of all, when did Violet Affleck turn into a teenager? I feel like I still remember seeing her walking to school as an 8-year-old, like, 4 years ago? She’s 17 now and got to go to the White House for a State Dinner with her mom. So cool for her! - (Lainey Gossip)

Sadly, Brad William Henke passed away at the far too young age of 56. You may not know him by name, but surely you recognize him from his outstanding work in Orange Is the New Black, Justified, Dexter, Shameless, and Space Jam, North Country, and Split. If you were a Denver Broncos fan, you may even remember him from the 1990 Super Bowl. Rest in Peace, Brad. - (Distractify)
