  • Twitter earlier this week banned an article published by the New York Post regarding the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
  • The report was based in part on files and emails that the Post said were taken from Hunter Biden’s laptop.

Twitter stops blocking New York Post story about Hunter Biden

Twitter has reversed its decision to block users from sharing an unsubstantiated article from the New York Post about former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter, The New York Times reports.

The company had previously stopped users from being able to post the story about alleged emails between a Ukrainian energy executive and Hunter Biden, citing its policy against sharing private information and against distributing “content obtained without authorization.” But after facing backlash especially among Republicans including President Trump, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said Friday that blocking links to the story “was wrong,” and the company altered its policies so that it “will no longer remove hacked content unless it is directly shared by hackers or those acting in concert with them,” per BuzzFeed News.

When Twitter announced changes to its policy on hacked materials on Thursday, the Hunter Biden article was still being blocked because Twitter said it violated

Twitter backtracks, allows users to post previously blocked NY Post article

PALO ALTO Calif/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Twitter Inc TWTR.N on Friday confirmed it reversed its decision to block links to a New York Post article about Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son, despite reaffirming the ban late on Thursday.

Republicans who had decried Twitter’s earlier actions posted the story freely on the site. “You can now share the bombshell story Big Tech didn’t want you to see,” Arizona Representative Paul Gosar tweeted on Friday morning.

Twitter acknowledged Friday it had stopped blocking links to early versions of the New York Post articles, saying the private information included in them had become widely available in the press and on other platforms.

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

Twitter Will Allow ‘Post’ Story On Hunter Biden To Be Shared, Reversing Course

has changed its mind and will let a dubious New York Post report on Hunter Biden be shared on its platform following several days of intense criticism from Republicans and ahead of CEO Jack Dorsey’s Congressional testimony next week.

It’s a complete reversal from Wednesday when the Post published its story and Twitter blocked users from sharing its URL. At the time, Twitter said the Post story contained hacked material and personal information and sharing those things were against its rules. (Worth noting: It’s not clear if the material cited by the Post is a genuine hack—or if they’re forgeries. Twitter nonetheless decided to treat it as an actual hack.) Facebook also throttled the distribution

In a series of tweets late Thursday, policy chief Vijaya Gadde said that the company will no longer remove hacked content “unless it is directly shared by hackers or those acting in concert with them.” Instead, it “will label Tweets to provide context instead of blocking links from being shared on Twitter.” Gadde said the updated policy will be put in place in the coming days.
