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

Twitter reverses policy on hacked content after Hunter Biden backlash

"We will label Tweets to provide context instead of blocking links from being shared on Twitter".

A week before, US publication New York Post broke a story of alleged corruption surrounding Hunter Biden, the son of US Democratic Party presidential contender Joe Biden; according to private emails accessed by the publication, Hunter invited an advisor from a Ukrainian energy company-where he was employed-to meet his father, then the vice president.

Twitter and Facebook had moved rapidly this week to restrict the spread of the story, which refered to unconfirmed messages from Joe Biden's child that were allegedly found by President Trump's partners.

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

A Twitter spokesman said the Post story would still be blocked on the platform despite the new policy because it contained people's personal information, such as email addresses.

The Associated Press reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is now investigating "whether the emails are part of a foreign influence operation" allegedly involving Trump ally Rudy Giuliani, who says he received the photos and messages after the fix shop owner reached out to his attorney.

Similarly, Team Sunweb said in a statement that Matthews was showing no signs of the virus. It is a very big disappointment to get this news.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted that it was "inadmissible" the organization hadn't gave more setting around its activity.

"Our goal is to try to add context, and now we have the capacity to do it", he tweeted here.

Twitter Policy chief Vijaya Gadde said Thursday evening that the company chose to change its policy on pirated materials following comments on its application earlier.

"Our communication around our actions on the @nypost article was not great", Dorsey tweeted alongside the Twitter Safety announcement.

In June, the platform further expanded its wrongthink-alert system, warning users when they attempted to share articles that were over 90 days old - regardless of whether they were true or not.

That policing has prompting calls of bias and censorship from Republican politicians, which continued this week in the wake of the New York Post story.
