Brazil’s former socialist president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva won the election by a razor thin margin
Twitter CEO Elon Musk suggested Saturday morning that Twitter possibly interfered in Brazil’s recent contentious presidential election.
“I’ve seen a lot of concerning tweets about the recent Brazil election,” Musk wrote on the platform he took control of in October just days before the election. “If those tweets are accurate, it’s possible that Twitter personnel gave preference to left wing candidates.”
The post suggests that Twitter employees may have been involved in influencing the recent election that was declared by the Brazilian Supreme Court as a narrow victory for socialist Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva over the right wing incumbent Jair Bolsonaro.
Lula won the election with 50.9% of the vote to Bolsonaro’s 49.1% in a result that triggered massive protests across the country by Bolsonaro supporters who alleged widespread fraud.
In late November, after previously acknowledging defeat, Bolsonaro claimed that an audit performed by his coalition showed signs of “malfunction” that his team believes affected some 280,000 voting machines.
The result would swing to 51.05% for Bolsonaro and 48.95% for Lula if the affected votes were invalidated.
Gleisi Hoffmann, president of Lula’s party, called Bolsonaro’s complaint little more than “chicanery.”
“No more procrastination, irresponsibility, insults to institutions and democracy,” she wrote on Twitter. “The election was decided in the vote and Brazil needs peace to build a better future.”
Bolsonaro earlier this year hosted Musk at a meeting in the Brazilian state of São Paulo, when he called the U.S. billionaire’s takeover of Twitter a “breath of hope” and dubbed him a “legend of liberty”.

The Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSA), Brazil’s top election court, fined Fernando Haddad (President Jair Bolsonaro’s leftist opponent) for having a contract with Google to manipulate search results during the election.
Luiz Edson Fachin, of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE), ruled that the PT candidate for the presidency, Fernando Haddad, paid Google to highlight negative content and manipulated searches to point to a website with negative coverage of Bolsonaro.
Google wasn’t fined because they claimed that as soon as they were notified by the court of the irregularities they dishonored the contract.
This is a common practice by Google in the United States.
Google manipulates search results for conservatives and conservative publishers to point to negative articles and hit pieces.
