Twitter still holding The Post's account hostage over Hunter Biden links

Twitter reverses policy on hacked content after Hunter Biden backlash

"We want to address the concerns that there could be many unintended consequences to journalists, whistleblowers and others in ways that are contrary to Twitter's objective of serving the public conversation", she said.

The bombshell revelation published less than three weeks until the November election comes days after the New York Post dumped its first round of reporting on content found on a DE computer. And even Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey suggested that it was "unacceptable" to block links in DMs without an explanation.

The response to Twitter's actions includes a complaint filed Friday with the Federal Election Commission by the Republican National Committee, which claims the company made an "illegal corporate in-kind political contribution" to Joe Biden's campaign. "We will label Tweets to provide context instead of blocking links from being shared on Twitter".

The Submit obtained a 2015 e-mail indicating that Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the Ukrainian vitality firm Burisma, thanked Hunter Biden for "giving a possibility" to satisfy his father, who was then serving as vp underneath Barack Obama. However, it is not clear when the meeting was scheduled or whether it ever happened.

The company's policy chief Vijaya Gadde said Thursday night that Twitter had decided to make changes to its hacked materials policy following feedback, but a spokesman told Reuters that the New York Post story would still be blocked for "violating the rules on private personal information". "The images contained in the articles include personal and private information - like email addresses and phone numbers - which violate our rules", it tweeted.

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.

The Pirated Material Policy was introduced in 2018 to discourage the release of private information as a result of hacks and unauthorized exposure. "We tried to find the right balance between people's privacy and the right of free expression, but we can do better".
