Ripple effects of Elon Musk taking over Twitter were felt on Wednesday after the Biden administration deleted a tweet which was fact checked by the social media platform.

The deleted tweet said Americans are “getting the biggest increase in their Social Security checks in 10 years through President Biden’s leadership.”

But since the social security checks are adjusted according to cost-of-living assessments, rather than because of Biden’s leadership, a Twitter admin added a note with said “context” under the tweet.

Shortly thereafter, the Biden admin deleted the tweet.

Fact checks have become regular occurrences on Twitter in recent years, but traditionally, they’re against right-leaning thinkers. 

Just before Musk took over Twitter, Dr. Peter McCullough, who has over 500,000 followers on Twitter, was suspended for violating the platform’s terms and services agreement for posting concerns about the COVID vaccines.

“All my followers are asking what happened on Twitter. First with no warning they stripped all my followers to zero, then they executed their kill machine–SUSPENDED! Will let you know if I come off life-support!” McCullough posted on Gab. an alternative social media platform.

Another prominent user currently suspended is James Lindsay, a mathematician and cultural critic of far-left gender ideology.

Musk said it will take a few weeks to make decisions about reinstating individuals who’ve been banned or suspended from the platform, such as former Republican President Donald Trump. 

Coincidentally or not, The Post Millennial reported on Wednesday that the Biden adminstation is investigating Musk’s purchase of Twitter. 

“A new report claims that the US Treasury Department has begun examining if they have the legal authority to start an investigation into (Elon Musk’s) purchase of Twitter due to the billionaire’s ties to foreign governments and investors,” PM reported.  

Last week, Musk dissolved Twitter’s entire board of directors and made himself “sole director” as reported by the Independent.
