Twitter changes its hacking policy after chaos over blocking NY Post article

Twitter has decided to tweak its hacked materials policy after causing a chaos by blocking an unconfirmed NY Post article about Biden. This created huge outrage alleging Twitter of bias. The key changes will be, Twitter will not remove hacked content unless it is shared by hackers or by those working with hackers directly. Twitter will label tweets to provide background, instead of blocking links.

Two simple questions - Why wasn't the same standard applied to the New York Times stories regarding Trump's taxes? That material was stolen and has not been verified by a third party. And will Twitter and Facebook also label unnamed or anonymous sources from newspapers like the Washington Post and the New York Times as unsubstantiated?

Breakup Twitter. They have too much power and influence for a single company.

Matthew 10:26-31 ERV "So don't be afraid of those people. Everything that is hidden will be shown. Everything that is secret will be made known. [27] I tell you all this secretly, but I want you to tell it publicly. Whatever I tell you privately, you should shout for everyone to hear. [28] "Don't be afraid of people. They can kill the body, but they cannot kill the soul. The only one you should fear is God, the one who can send the body and the soul to be destroyed in hell. [29] When birds are sold, two small birds cost only a penny. But not even one of those little birds can die without your Father knowing it. [30] God even knows how many hairs are on your head. [31] So don't be afraid. You are worth more than a whole flock of birds.

Who cares? This already affected Biden's town hall last night where he wasn't asked one question about it. Twitter must be stripped of platform protections. It's a publisher.

The emails weren’t hacked. They were recovered from a computer which was brought into a computer repair shop and abandoned. I’m sure the owner gave consent to access the hard drive when it was brought in, So even if the hacking policy stays in place the emails don’t violate it. Would Twitter apply the same rule if child porn was found on the computer and Twitter was talking about that ?

For all the ignorant people saying the data is fake and hacked... there are pictures and videos of hunter in the data that have never been released. There is a sex tape on the hard drive too, so maybe you can just wank off with that. There has never been a full blown, non partisan, investigation into Hunters dealings in Ukraine or China. I believe we have enough evidence now to conclude that it's long overdue.

Revoke their 230 protections and regulate their industry. Or send them to China. The CCP loves duplicitous authoritarians.

Unplug Twitter, Google and Facebook from the internet. Seize their routers, switches, servers and freeze their Bank accounts. Put Mike Cernovich in charge of response team to shutdown socalist media.

Hacking had nothing to do with it! Just another cover for election interference.

It has since come out that Giuliani was fed misinformation to give to trump by the Russians. The whole story of how this guy got the hard drive was very suspect. So I think bs like that, that is very questionable, and has pretty much been debunked...should be taken down. It’s bad enough that misinformation is posted, but #PROVEN misinformation should not be allowed. If you want to read misinformation, go to the source...fox!
