Twitter founder Jack Dorsey called on the platform’s new owner, billionaire Elon Musk, to embrace full transparency at the company, Wednesday.

Musk started releasing files, data and other previously unknown information from the inner workings of the social media giant in early December after finalizing his purchase of the company in November. On Dec. 2, Musk said that files would be released the following day, but later noted that the company would “need another day or so.”

In response to the thread, Dorsey wrote, “if the goal is transparency to build trust,  why not just release everything without filter and let people judge for themselves? Including all discussions around current and future actions? Make everything public now,” adding the hashtag “TwitterFiles.”

While some might be quick to call Dorsey’s tweet hypocritical, as he never released information about Twitter’s inner workings as Musk has in recent days, the prompt also calls into question just how deep this whole thing could go. Some Twitter users are frustrated with Musk for managing the release of information, rather than just dumping it all for the public to filter through.

Dorsey’s support of a clean dump of data suggests he’s not particularly worried about how the content of those files might reflect upon him. Or perhaps it will, and the whole thing could come crashing down. Either way, what a fun spectator sport Twitter has become, huh guys?
