Twitter reverses policy on hacked content after Hunter Biden backlash

After New York Post's Hunter Biden article, Twitter changes policy on hacked materials

This content is shared here because the topic may interest Snopes readers; it does not, however, represent the work of Snopes fact-checkers or editors. On Wednesday, the Post reported emails showing Joe Biden repeatedly lied when claiming he never spoke with Hunter, "or with anyone else", about his son's potentially criminal overseas business activity and even fat-shamed an Iowa voter for bringing it up.

One of the former officials told the Post that the warnings caused national security adviser Robert O'Brien to privately warn Trump that "any information Giuliani brought back from Ukraine should be considered contaminated by Russian Federation".

In a reversal of its earlier stance, Twitter finally chose to allow users to share an article criticising Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his son.

"I know you'd ask it", Biden fired back. The emails have surfaced as USA officials have been warning that Russian Federation, which backed Trump's 2016 campaign through hacking of Democratic emails and a covert social media campaign, is interfering again this year.

One of the pilots said the man was about 300 yards from the aircraft at an altitude of about 3,000 feet. The first incident occurred on August 30, when an American Airlines pilot spotted a man in a jet pack .


Within the wake of the controversy over Twitter's block on the Publish tales, Trump on Friday tweeted a hyperlink to a satirical article from a right-wing web site with the headline, "Twitter Shuts Down Whole Community to Sluggish Unfold of Damaging Biden Information".

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani listens as U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during a news conference in the Briefing Room of the White House on September 27, 2020 in Washington, DC. That is, until he allegedly came into contact with Giuliani's attorney, Robert Costello.

Requested Saturday why Twitter was nonetheless blocking one of many Publish's tales whereas unblocking others, a Twitter rep declined to offer an evidence.

Facebook and Twitter took unusual steps to stop the sharing of New York Post history, prompting President Donald Trump and other Republicans to rage. The FBI reportedly seized the laptop last December, but the fix shop owner made copies of the hard drive before turning it over.

To the contrary, emails showed Hunter Biden actually introduced a senior advisor named Vadym Pozharskyi to his Ukrainian energy company, Burisma, to his vice president father. Ltd.is the Chinese energy firm founded by Ye Jianming, who held positions with the CCP and reportedly offered Hunter Biden $10 million a year for introductions alone.

Giuliani has publicly denied that he obtained the material from a foreign source.

As Business Insider previously reported, the New York Post's reporting is filled with holes and red flags that raise questions about its authenticity, including whether the leaked emails are legitimate, how they were obtained, and who obtained them. It said authorities were investigating whether the emails are linked to a "foreign intelligence operation" without singling out Russian Federation, however. The exact scope of what was being investigated was not clear.
