James O’Keefe even put a disguise on and had dinner at Morton’s steakhouse with the Twitter employee, Clay Haynes.

The statement from Twitter spox is as follows:

“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.”

James O’Keefe responded by blasting Twitter, “UPDATE: Notice how the official Twitter statement does not address the subpoena/investigation at all. , your users ought to know- would you give private information to DOJ w/out letting them know?”

O’Keefe went after Jack Dorsey again, “What’s interesting about statement is that he Doesn’t deny his what his Senior Networking engineer said into our hidden cameras. in fact, he seems to confirm he said what he said.”

Twitter employee caught in O’Keefe’s undercover video, Clay Haynes tweeted out, “Well. This is no fun.”
