On Tuesday night, Project Veritas released the second part of their Twitter gallery. This time they got lead client partner Alex Martinez in front of the camera saying that Twitter as a company cares more about ideology than making money. But at the same time, the employee expresses the idea that it is Twitter’s rules that make advertisers happy.
What is clear is that ideologically driven Twitter employees believe that freedom of expression is second only to a greater cause, such as “For the Planet”. Martinez says that this cult of the company will rebel against Elon Musk’s plans.
Alex Martinez’s role with Twitter has him dealing with relationships with advertisers on the platform. In a conversation with Veritas’ secret agent, Martinez establishes a connection between the moderation aspect of things (control of information) and making money.
“Advertisers are scared because, because of what he likes when he tweets like ‘I want freedom of speech, yada, yada, yada.’ Yeah. Like who really knows what that means?” tells Factory Veritas.
Musk responded to the expose on Twitter.
She commented on a Twitter exec targeting freedom of expression.
Martinez expands on his assessment of the situation:
“As an advertiser, because my work is what I do every day and why I go out is what we want [Twitter] To be as fair, transparent and accurate as possible. And if that means there is a level of oversight to get it right. Quote, quote again. What does correct mean? I think, like, it gets into an idea like, OK, what’s right?
“Like every idea of admiration—you know, it’s kind of like the principle of being good and bad, like there’s good and evil and there—it’s either bad or good. It’s not, it’s not like a mixture of good and evil. It’s like one or the other, And it’s kind of like the same idea — like, is she…is she honest or is it lies or is it a mixture of truth and lies? Do you know what I mean? And like, where do you call — where do you draw the line?”
Elon Musk spoke about his beliefs regarding free speech in the days following the initial announcement of the Twitter acquisition deal.
“That’s why I hate this deal so much,” said the undercover from Veritas. “Elon will fix everything.”
But Martinez reassured him otherwise. “There are people who will try to hold back as much as they can, because we do … the rest of us who have been here, believe in something that is good for the planet and not just to give people free speech.”
The Twitter employee said it will be over when Elon Musk has to take charge and actually talk to employees about these issues. Martinez says people at the company will confront him about the platform’s misinformation policies.
“People don’t know how to make a rational decision if you don’t – correct things that are supposed to come out in the open, right?” It’s what Twitter employees think.
Alex Martinez says Twitter is more interested in ideology than profit. “Now I think it’s about, well, right now we’re not making a profit. So the ideology would say, which is what led us not to make a profit.”
“If we were applying all these rules… and Elon wanted to break it up, our ideology technically made us not make money because we don’t make money, and Elon wants to flip it the other way so we can make money, do you understand what I mean?”
Then Martinez poked fun at Asperger’s for his (potential) future boss. “It’s like a crazy tune, it has an Asperger tone,” Martinez tells Veritas’ secret agent. “So he’s special. We all know that. And that’s fine. So here, no one is going to say some damn crazy because he’s special.”
“I’m like you disabled – you literally are disabled. However, you really are. So, I can’t even take what you’re saying seriously. Because you’re special.”
At the end of the video, it is explained that Twitter has issued a warning to employees about the upcoming work that Project Veritas will be doing. Alex Martinez couldn’t believe that the person he was talking to would be one of those secret people.
Tuesday’s release by Veritas follows a revelation on Monday in which chief engineer Ciro Morogisan was caught on camera expressing the same prevailing sentiments: that Twitter’s corporate culture is openly leftist, enough that it affects the site’s moderation operations and policies, and that there is a fair An angry employee is Elon Musk coming to radically change things.
