TWITTER FILES: Twitter loves Dr Fauci and Big Pharma "marketing strategy"
Documents uncovered at Twitter point to dissembling by Fauci under oath, and a social media company that helped market client's COVID vaccine while removing tweets for vaccine “misinformation”

When Elon Musk tweeted “My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci” last December, Fauci went on Fox News and said he had no clue what the Twitter CEO was talking about.
“A lot of people are spouting out a lot of things about me and Twitter,” Fauci told Fox News. “I’ve never had a Twitter account. I don’t intend on having a Twitter account, and I’ve had nothing to do with Twitter. So I don’t know what they’re talking about when they say that.”
Fauci made similar claims during an almost 7-hour deposition. While under oath, the then-medical advisor to President Biden denied using Twitter or even paying attention to social media.
“I don’t do social media.”
“Since I don’t have a Twitter account, I don’t see tweets.”
“I’m so dissociated from social media … I’ve never gotten involved in any of that.”
“The social media and Twitter, I told you, I don’t have a Twitter account. I don’t tweet. I don’t do Facebook. I don’t do anything.”
Not true according to a new Twitter File uncovered during a visit to Twitter’s San Francisco HQ that shows Anthony Fauci…taking over the White House’s Twitter account. “Dr. Anthony Fauci did an account takeover for @WHCOVIDResponse,” reads a Twitter internal COVID-19 monthly update.
Twitter’s monthly update also documented work they did with Johnson and Johnson on “messaging strategy” to help market their pharma client’s COVID-19 vaccine—action that happened only months after Twitter began removing and labeling tweets that they deemed vaccine “misinformation.” By the summer of 2021, Johnson and Johnson began a full court press, marketing multiple pharma products on Twitter.
In a separate Twitter File, a senior Twitter attorney, who interfaced with the FBI on enforcement and removal of “disinformation,” praised Fauci to Twitter’s lawyers as America’s “leading trusted voice” on COVID-19.
