Twitter Kept Entire 'Database' of Republican Requests to Censor Postshttps://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-news/elon-trump-twitter-files-collusion-biden-censorship-1234675969/
WHEN THE WHITE House called up Twitter in the early morning hours of September 9, 2019, officials had what they believed was a serious issue to report: Famous model Chrissy Teigen had just called President Donald Trump a pussy ass bitch on Twitter and the White House wanted the tweet to come down.
That exchange revealed during Wednesdays House Oversight Committee hearing on Twitter by Rep. Gerry Connolly and others like it are nowhere to be found in Elon Musks Twitter Files releases, which have focused almost exclusively on requests from Democrats and the feds to the social media company. The newly empowered Republican majority in the House of Representatives is now devoting significant resources and time to investigating this supposed collusion between liberal politicians and Twitter. Some Republicans even believe the release of the Twitter Files is the tip of the spear of their crusade against the alleged liberal bias of Big Tech.
But former Trump administration officials and Twitter employees tell Rolling Stone that the White Houses Teigan tweet demand was hardly an isolated incident: The Trump administration and its allied Republicans in Congress routinely asked Twitter to take down posts they objected to the exact behavior that theyre claiming makes President Biden, the Democrats, and Twitter complicit in an anti-free speech conspiracy to muzzle conservatives online.
It was strange to me when all of these investigations were announced because it was all about the exact same stuff that we had done [when Donald Trump was in office], one former top aide to a senior Trump administration official tells Rolling Stone. It was normal.

... I think I know the answer... they needed to know if the phrase exceeded the "three insults" limit. I say no. Examine the original Tweet. Trump is a "pussy ass bitch." That's one. Now if it was three separate tweets... "Trump is a pussy" and "Trump is an ass" and "Trump is a bitch" - THAT would be THREE. Also, note the original Tweet did not employ commas.
