James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has released a new video exposing Twitter’s willingness to breach its users’ privacy. Or rather, one user in particular: President Trump.
The undercover journalism outlet, famed for its exposés revealing bias in the mainstream media, has now turned its attention to the tech companies that have come to dominate access to information in the modern world.

In the video, Twitter senior network engineer Clay Haynes says the company would be happy to hand over the president’s private messages to the Justice Department if asked.

Haynes also claimed that the company has access to “every single person’s account, every single direct message, deleted direct messages, deleted tweets.” Haynes told Project Veritas’ journalist that he could tell, “exactly who logged in from where, [with] what username and password, when they changed their password.” It suggests Twitter employees can read users’ private messages, even after deleting them.

Project Veritas has released a list of alternative information channels to monitor in the event of censorship.

Twitter responded to Project Veritas’ explosive undercover video exposing Security Engineer Clay Haynes saying they are “happy to help” the DOJ with their Trump investigation.

In an article by the International Business Times, a Twitter spokesperson said:

“The individual depicted in this video was speaking in a personal capacity and does not represent or speak for Twitter. Twitter only responds to valid legal requests, and does not share any user information with law enforcement without such a request.

“We deplore the deceptive and underhanded tactics by which this footage was obtained and selectively edited to fit a pre-determined narrative. Twitter is committed to enforcing our rules without bias and empowering every voice on our platform, in accordance with the Twitter Rules.”

Additionally, Haynes himself wrote on his personal Twitter account:
