Twitter Refuses To Unlock NYPost Account Unless Paper Deletes Tweets About Hunter Biden

Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

By immediately condemning the Hunter Biden emails and photos published by the New York Post as the work of Russian hackers colluding with Rudy Giuliani, the MSM destroyed any credibility it might have had. As we pointed out earlier, more evidence has emerged to support Giuliani’s version of events – namely, that he was given a copy of the laptop’s hard drive and all of its contents by the owner of a Delaware computer-repair shop.

But despite apologizing and acknowledging  “straight up blocking of URLs was wrong”, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has apparently not finished punishing the New York Post, because three days after the account was initially frozen, the New York Post hasn’t been able to tweet, and according to a NY Post report, Twitter has frozen the New York Post’s account until the paper’s social media managers agree to delete six tweets about Hunter Biden.

“Anyone who looks at The Post’s Twitter feed can’t even see the tweets about the Biden stories, which have been replaced by messages saying, ‘This Tweet is no longer available,'” the Post wrote on Friday.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 previously said the Post’s Hunter Biden stories violated the website’s Hacked Media Policy which prohibits the display of “hacked” information, an allegation that the Post called “baseless.” However, on Friday, Twitter updated that policy, saying it will start labeling content that violates its rules rather than remove it altogether “unless it is directly shared by hackers or those acting in concert with them.”

Confusingly, though, the company said that these changes wouldn’t apply retroactively, meaning that the NYP still must delete the tweets if it wants to use its account again, even though readers can’t even see them.

Soviet Russian? CNN is poorly informed.

Arrest the TWIT Board of Directors for violating Civili RIGHTS:
These PUBLICLY TRADED Corporations are violating OUR Constitutional Rights and their Boards of Directors should be Criminally Prosecuted. Facebook and Twitter both hide behind the LIE that, “Hey, we’re private companies” They ARE NOT private, they are PUBLICLY TRADED on the NASDAQ
A federal appeals court ruled that President Trump is not allowed to block people on Twitter over statements he does not like, affirming a lower court’s decision that declared the president’s account a “public forum. Then ALL of TWITTER is a PUBLIC FORUM.
FACEBOOK — should be named BURNbook —- burning every “book” with which Jewish Zuckerberg and the TRIBE disagrees –
Furthermore, in “Marsh vs Alabama.” Marsh was forbidden to hand out religious tracts in a company-owned town in Alabama. Marsh won.SCOTUS ruled that a private corporation operating in a public capacity is legally bound by the First Amendment.
They advertize themselves as PUBLIC SOCIAL MEDIA and then violate Your Civil RIght of Free .Speech
FACEBOOK, TWITTER, YOUTUBE, REDDIT, GOOGLE are PLACES OF PUBLIC GATHERING, “SOCIAL Media”, and ADVERTISE themselves as PUBLIC places.. They are also PUBLICLY TRADED CORPORATIONS, listed on the New york Stock exchange. File complaints with the SEC, and every “Human Rights” agency. File complaints with the NYSE for Bigotry and Discrimination.
FACEBOOK is a PUBLIC SPACE therefore it has no right or legal option to censor participants. FACEBOOK is a PUBLICLY TRADED company, NOT a “private entity” and it solicits PUBLIC memberships.
the FCC removed the telecommunication companies from the Net Neutrality laws and they are to be treated as Internet companies, rather than like regulated phone service companies.So as with ALL companies they cannot DISCRIMINATE.
They advertise themselves as “Social Media & Public Spaces” so everything that is covered under the First Amendment can be posted there. ….. these “Social Media” can & should also be sued for violating People’s 1st Amendment RIGHTS to speak freely in PUBLIC SPACES.
giant tech firms that are publically traded that take government subsidies are not private. They should have to follow the same rules that all government contractors have to follow.
Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, etc. engaging in politically motivated censorship is like your meter reader shutting off your electricity because you have a Trump sign on your lawn. These social media have become like public utilities and therefore have no right to engage in political censorship. It is way past time to impose common carrier status on social media. Just like the phone company cannot censor your conversations there, social media should not be allowed to interfere with content there. Social media is the modern day phone company.
“It is way past time to impose common carrier status on social media.”
Meanwhile, Ajit Pai of the FCC has disallowed common carrier status for ISPs and, moreover, has allowed them to censor content, block websites, raise prices for everyone, and wage class war by using an excellent standard of speed and service for the rich and an inferior one (slow speed and service) for the non-rich.
“Social media is the modern day phone company.” – and also a potent means of grassroots organization. By censoring one side they are DENYING the CIVIL RIGHT to organize and associate.
Depriving people of free speech is a HATE CRIME in itself.
They are violating YOUR CIVIL RIGHTS by denying you the means of communication.


Shut it down!


Now even “authoritative” MSM sources are getting censored by liberal big-tech outlets. Hopefully this might enlighten them about the kind of censorship independent media has been dealing with for at least a decade.

Trap Is Not Gay

They “censor” the controlled opposition to make the controlled opposition look legit opposition. But the real debates don’t even make it that far on most USA websites.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
