Woah. This claim in must-read except from new book on Peter Thiel. We knew this secret meeting happened shortly after Zuckerberg's "free expression" speech at Georgetown. FB denies "agreement" happened - it would be an astounding abuse of market power by FB and Trump admin. /1

This claim also significant and resurfaces why SEC needs to revisit its settlement. A reminder on reports that Peter Thiel's Palantir was involved in teaching Cambridge Analytica how to scrape data from Facebook's platform. Investors should be concerned. /3

It also may explain Zuckerberg's discomfort when questions surfaced about Thiel and Palantir. /6
Wow. That’s a new nugget and points back to Facebook’s own knowledge/awareness at the executive level and hints to why Zuckerberg got so weird in testimony to both @SenatorCantwell and @aoc when asked about Thiel and/or Palantir. Will link my full thread below.
