Journalist Bari Weiss released the second installment of “The Twitter Files” on Thursday night, outlining the company’s “secret blacklists.”

Among the individuals targeted by Twitter were prominent conservative commentators such as Dan Bongino of Fox News and Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA. The former was targeted with a “search blacklist,” while the latter was slapped with a “do not amplify” internal notice, Weiss revealed in screenshots.

The latest investigation into Twitter’s past conduct, based on access granted by new owner Elon Musk, “reveals that teams of Twitter employees build blacklists, prevent disfavored tweets from trending, and actively limit the visibility of entire accounts or even trending topics—all in secret, without informing users,” Weiss tweeted.
