Twitter Capitulates: Reinstates New York Post Account After 16-Day Suspension

Following contentious Congressional testimony this week from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and a 22% drop on Friday, the social media giant finally decided to unlock the New York Post‘s account just days before the general election – after more than two weeks in Twitter jail for posting a negative article on the company’s preferred candidate, Joe Biden.

In a Friday afternoon thread, Twitter Safety wrote that their policies are ‘living documents’ which they’re willing to ‘update and adjust when we encounter new scenarios or receive important feedback from the public.’

The company says they’re ‘updating our practice of not retroactively overturning prior enforcement,” and have decided to let the Post have their account back.

The Post responds:

In short, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) helped stop Twitter’s election meddling by silencing one of the largest (and oldest) outlets in the country.

The move also comes after DHS Acting Secretary Chad Wolf penned a scorching letter to Twitter demanding answers over why they’ve censored Customs and Border Protection senior official Mark Morgan over a post touting the southern border wall as helping to “stop gang members, murderers, sexual predators, and drugs from entering our country.” It appears his account is still locked, however.

The company was last able to post on October 14, the day they dropped a bombshell report regarding alleged incriminating contents on Hunter Biden’s laptop.

 

Earlier in the day, CNN’s Jake Tapper suggested the post simply bend the knee and delete the offending tweet.

Meanwhile, the Post has gained nearly 200,000 new followers since being locked out.
