'People were going to die': Former Twitter employee on flagging potential Jan. 6 violence
The House Select Committee investigating January 6 heard testimony from a former Twitter employee who says they begged the social media platform to do something about potential violence connected to former President Dondald Trump's election lies. Twitter spokesperson Jessica Herrera-Flanigan responded, "Leading up to and following the election, we deployed numerous policy and product interventions to protect the public conversation. We declared the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers violent extremist groups in 2018 and 2020 respectively, and permanently suspended accounts associated with the organizations under our violent organizations policy, as well as many of the organizers of the attack for violations of our policies."
