Twitter refuses to unlock New York Post account unless Hunter Biden posts deleted
GOP has criticized social media platforms for blocking outlet’s reporting on Hunter Biden
Twitter has refused to unlock the New York Post’s account since Wednesday unless the outlet deletes six tweets about its reporting on 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden‘s son, Hunter Biden, the Post reported.
Both the San Francisco-based social media platform and Facebook came under fire this week after the two blocked users from sharing a Post article showing purported communication between 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and an adviser to a Ukrainian energy company.
The younger Biden’s work in the country while his father was vice president was at the heart of President Trump’s impeachment trial earlier this year. House Democrats accused Trump of improperly attempting to condition U.S. aid on an investigation into Biden, then a contender in the party’s presidential primaries, by the Ukrainian government.
“Anyone who looks at The Post’s Twitter feed can’t even see the tweets about the Biden stories, which have been replaced by messages saying, ‘This Tweet is no longer available,'” the Post wrote on Friday.
Twitter confirmed to FOX Business that the Post “has been informed what is necessary to unlock their account.”
