Elon Musk exposes secret Pfizer operation in Twitter

/ 09:21 AM January 10, 2023

Elon Musk just released the latest installment of Twitter Files. He revealed a secret Pfizer procedure that censors vaccine criticisms on Twitter. The latest files focus on Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a sitting board member of Pfizer and former FDA commissioner.

The Twitter CEO said, “Some conspiracies are actually true.” Musk referred to an official Twitter Files release from critic Alex Berenson. He had been a vocal opponent of mRNA vaccines and sued the social media platform after Twitter personally targeted him. 

An active COVID contrarian, Berenson’s comments about the vaccine received backlash from critics, while some fans praised him for being vocal. He was also the latest to have access to the Twitter Files, where he published his findings titled “Unreported Truths.” It was in his Substack newsletter.

Berenson tweeted, “My first #TwitterFiles report: how @scottgottliebmd – a top Pfizer board member – used the same Twitter lobbyist as the White House to suppress debate on Covid vaccines, INCLUDING FROM A FELLOW HEAD OF @US_FDA!” He even thanked Musk for exposing the files.

In addition, the “unreported Truth” files discussed how Dr. Scott Gottlieb made efforts to censor the vaccine’s critics.  Berenson noted, “On August 27, 2021, Dr. Scott Gottlieb – a Pfizer director with over 550,000 Twitter followers – saw a tweet he didn’t like, a tweet that might hurt sales of Pfizer’s mRNA vaccines.”

He continued, “The tweet explained correctly that natural immunity after Covid infection was superior to vaccine protection. It called on the White House to ‘follow the science’ and exempt people with natural immunity from upcoming vaccine mandates.”

Berenson also shared an email dated August 2021 that Gottlieb sent to Todd O’Boyle, Twitter’s senior public policy manager. O’Boyle was declining a tweet that Dr. Brett Giroir had written.

He was an official from the former Trump administration. Dr. Giroir wrote, “It’s now clear #COVID19 natural immunity is superior to #vaccine immunity, by ALOT. There would be no scientific justification for #vax proof if a person had prior infection.”


Moreover, Gottlieb told O’Boyle, “This is the kind of stuff that’s corrosive. Here he draws a sweeping conclusion off a single retrospective study in Israel that hasn’t been peer reviewed. But this tweet will end up going viral and driving news coverage.”

Berenson said that O’Boyle forwarded Gottlieb’s email to the “Strategic Response” team of Twitter. He wrote, “Please see this report from the former FDA commissioner.” Then the Twitter team tagged Giroir’s tweet as “misleading.” They also disabled the tweet’s option for likes and shares. 

In September 2021, Gottlieb, a CNBC contributor and high-profile media personality during the coronavirus pandemic, flagged a tweet from Substack writer and COVID policy critic Justin Hart.  The tweet read, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but a viral pathogen with a child mortality rate of ~0% has cost our children nearly three years of schooling.”

Berenson wrote, “Why Gottlieb objected to Hart’s words is not clear, but the Pfizer shot would soon be approved for children 5 to 11, representing another massive market for Pfizer, if parents could be convinced Covid was a real threat to their kids.”

Twitter Files

Berenson’s report had noted that Alex Gottlieb was targeting him days before Twitter suspended him. It wasn’t until July 2022 that Twitter reinstated Berenson following a legal battle with the tech giant. Gottlieb reacted to the release of the latest Twitter files. His thread implies that the revealed emails aren’t telling the whole story.

“In the past, I’ve raised concerns with Twitter related to the safety of me and others and threats being made on the platform. This included direct as well as specific threats. Sometimes it included statements that I believed were purposely false and inflammatory,” Gottlieb wrote Monday. 

“The selective disclosure of my private communications with Twitter stokes the threat environment. So does actions that empower people who’ve shown little restraint when it comes to purposeful vitriol. It instigates more menacing dialogue, with potentially serious consequences.”

This recent release is the 13th installment of the Twitter Files. It started going viral last month. Prominent journalists Matt Taibbi, Michael Shallenberger, Bari Weiss, David Zwieg, and Lee Fang shared a series of information.

The platform has covered many topics in its previous Twitter Files. It ranges from issues concerning the 2020 presidential election to present-day controversy over how to handle prominent conservative figures.

Recent debates have circled around Twitter’s decision to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story during the election and its decision to possibly ban former President Trump permanently. Additionally, many are now examining accusations of “shadow-banning” on Twitter.
