Twitter Files: Who the Heck is Vijaya Gadde?

If you were like me — and a host of other conservatives — you were following Matt Taibbi’s Twitter thread as he revealed the shenanigans at the social media site. The name of Vijaya Gadde frequently came up, and perhaps you wondered, Who the heck is Vijaya Gadde?

In short, she was Twitter’s lead attorney and one of its top executives. She was also one of the key players in the decision to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story. But that’s not all — Gadde has been a longtime censor of conservative voices, leading journalist Saager Enjeti to dub her the site’s “top censorship advocate.” Plus, as the head of Twitter’s “Legal, Policy and Trust & Safety” department, she led the ban on Donald Trump’s account.

But it’s all good, she said. She defended Twitter’s censorship in an interview with podcasters Tim Pool and Joe Rogan in 2019. We’re just keeping people safe, Gadde insisted, doing her best to gaslight the hosts.

Fast forward to 2022, and Vijaya Gadde wasn’t happy when Elon Musk proposed buying Twitter in April. In fact, she reportedly cried.

Then, late in October, after finally taking over the company, Elon Musk fired her, cutting her loose from her $17 million salary.


The Hypocrisy of Vijaya Gadde

Gadde merrily led the charge on Twitter’s censoring of political conservatives. She was instrumental in throwing a president off its platform. Most egregiously, however, she worked to ban the bombshell Hunter Biden laptop, calling it “unsafe,” a practice typically used in child pornography cases.

But she had no problem with allowing real child porn on Twitter, even after the victim’s parents begged the company to remove images.

In 2021, 17-year-old “John Doe” filed a lawsuit against Twitter for failing to remove two porn videos of him that were shot when he was a 13-year-old. He alleged that traffickers, posing as 16-year-old girls, lured him into sending nude pictures of him. They then subjected him to blackmail.

However, the “Legal Policy, Trust, and Safety” team — headed by Gadde — refused to take down the videos. They didn’t violate policies, the company insisted:

“Thanks for reaching out. We’ve reviewed the content, and didn’t find a violation of our policies, so no action will be taken at this time.”

Even a professor at UC Berkeley wondered what the hell? Professor at the School of Information Hany Farid said:

“It’s child sexual abuse material. He was 13 years old and being extorted. What the hell is Twitter doing?”

“How bad does it have to get?” There have been many cases like this where there’s been clear failures, but this one seems particularly clear cut, and the harm seems particularly clear cut.”

Remember that this occurred during the tenure of Vijaya Gadde, the same woman who kept Twitter users from reading the revelations from the Hunter Biden laptop as set out in the New York Post. What a hypocrite.


So Should She Go to Prison?

For suppressing the rights of Americans to express speech on a public platform? Along with Jack Dorsey, then-head of Twitter?



I’m not an attorney, so I don’t know the legalities of such things. But in a just world, people like Vijaya Gadde, Jack Dorsey, and those responsible should pay.

She should at least lose her law license, as attorney William Perry Pendley tweeted:

“Vijaya Gadde, admitted in California & New York, should be disbarred. “[A] lawyer should further the public’s [] confidence in the rule of law and the justice system because legal institutions in a constitutional democracy depend on popular participation and support….”

Yeah, she said that. “The 1A doesn’t apply, we are changing the scales and trying to amplify content that comes from ‘credible sources.'”

Elon Musk has teased that he will be releasing more damning Twitter files. Stay tuned, and keep the popcorn warm.

    What a sick and twisted individual.

    Exactly how do you validate policies that allow child pornography in the first place, much less the videos themselves?

  • ErisGuy says:

    Who is she? Allen. Invader. Parasite. Subversive. We have surrendered our liberties to creatures such as her without a shot being fired. Shame on us.

    Don’t let foreigners have positions of power in American companies.

    I won’t use the words my SIL used, but I agree with them entirely. Let’s just say they rhyme with “war”, “witch” and “runt”. Sorry to be so graphic—but Vijay(j)aya Gadde is a betrayal to freedom-loving women EVERYWHERE! Her H1B and/or naturalization should be pulled and her and her entire trashy family booted out of the country immediately. No excuses. Send her Marxist butt back to whatever turd world crap hole she came from!
