Twitter Won't Unlock New York Post Account Until Old Tweets Deleted

Twitter reverses policy on hacked content after Hunter Biden backlash

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

Twitter is cracking down on the spread of "misleading" content ahead of the U.S. election, as users attempting to retweet anything similar to the NYPost's Hunter Biden leaks will now get a warning the material is "disputed".

Hunter Biden had allegedly sent emails about Biden's connection with a Ukrainian gas company. The unidentified shop owner reportedly told the newspaper he copied the hard drive and gave the machine to federal authorities after the computer seemed to have been forgotten.

The New York Post article is based on alleged emails given to the lawyer of Rudy Giuliani, Trump's personal attorney.

Biden has come under fire from progressives for criticizing Big Tech while hiring or accepting advice from some of its defenders.

The user will be able to click a button to "find out more" about why Twitter doesn't want the material shared, and then presumably post it anyway.

Facebook said it was "lessening" the story's circulation on its foundation while sitting tight for outsider actuality checkers to confirm it, something it consistently does with material that is not prohibited out and out from its administration, however it hazards spreading falsehoods or causing hurt in different manners.

Information in the reports came from data extracted from a MacBook Pro laptop that a DE fix shop owner has said was dropped off in April 2019 but never picked up. It's now been revealed that Steve Bannon boasted about holding the material back in September, and the FBI is investigating whether it's a Russian propaganda and disinformation campaign. Another senior site reliability engineer posted on August 18, calling the President, "a f-king idiot" and the voters who elected him - "hysterically f-king stupid people". And even Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey suggested that it was "unacceptable" to block links in DMs without an explanation. Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham and Republican senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley also called for sending a subpoena to Facebook. "This to me crystallises the problem better than anything I could think of". "Straight blocking of URLs was wrong, and we updated our policy and enforcement to fix", he tweeted.

While Twitter said it won't censor tweets in the future that contain the story anymore, it is still requiring the Post to delete the old tweets because they violated the company's policies at the time. "And instead of blocking links from being shared, tweets will be labeled to provide context", Gadde said.

"We need to address the worries that there could be numerous unintended results to writers, informants and others in manners that are in opposition to Twitter's motivation of serving the public discussion", she said. The story has not been confirmed by other publications. But it didn't alert users about why they couldn't share the link until hours later.
