Twitter is backing down and changing the “hacked materials” rule it used to justify a wide-ranging censorship campaign against a New York Post article that revealed corruption on the part of Hunter Biden.
After a massive backlash, the platform announced Friday that it’s only going to censor “hacked” content posted either by hackers itself or by “those working in concert with them.
“Over the last 24 hours, we’ve received significant feedback (from critical to supportive) about how we enforced our Hacked Materials Policy yesterday,” Twitter “safety” executive Vijaya Gadde tweeted. “After reflecting on this feedback, we have decided to make changes to the policy and how we enforce it.”
The big tech platform had falsely applied the rule to begin with, erroneously claiming that the materials published by the New York Post were obtained through “hacking.” They weren’t; Hunter Biden legally forfeited a laptop to a Delaware computer repairman after declining to pick up the device after delivering it for water damage repairs. Under the terms of his agreement with the repairman, the device became his legal property.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey had also admitted that the “communication” of the company’s censorship campaign was “not great.” Even he can coerced to back down if he’s sufficiently criticized by those who oppose Orwellian censorship campaigns.

The censorship and deletion of content would appear entirely arbitrary, if it wasn’t obvious that it’s entirely directed at the whims of establishment liberal “journalists” and Democrat operatives. This company has no place determining what political content circulates on the internet. It’s time to revoke Section 230 protections and regulate the Internet’s largest social media companies as utilities, insuring a right to platform access to all.
Twitter Censors Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder for Warning of Dangers about Mail-in Voting
Big Tech is out of control.
Twitter has censored Obama-era attorney general Eric Holder for warning liberal Democrats against mail-in voting at this stage of the electoral race.
“It’s too late to use the mails,” Holder wrote in his shuttered tweet. “Given Supreme Court rulings I urge everyone to now vote in person; early vote or use drop boxes.”
Holder is referring to recent rulings in places like Wisconsin and Michigan, two battleground states where the Democrats were pushing for votes to be counted even if they were submitted by mail following election day. These rulings have made it significantly more difficult for Democrats to commit widespread voter fraud in those states.
“Protect your health but don’t let the Court and the deliberately crippled Postal Service deprive you of your most precious civil right. Plan your vote,” Holder added.
In response to Holder’s plea to Democrats, Twitter limited the distribution of his tweet and provided the following warning: “Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about how to participate in an election or another civic process.”
Left-wing journalist Michael Tracey, who has been a principled opponent to Big Brother censorship by Silicon Valley monopolies, pointed out how these corporate restrictions on free speech will inevitably hurt the liberals who are begging for it out of political expediency:

Big League Politics has reported on the many occasions that Twitter has censored President Trump for voicing concerns about the security of mail-in voting:
The social media giant Twitter is censoring President Donald Trump again, placing a warning on a tweet he published Sunday morning about the dangers of mail-in voting.
“So now the Democrats are using Mail Drop Boxes, which are a voter security disaster. Among other things, they make it possible for a person to vote multiple times. Also, who controls them, are they placed in Republican or Democrat areas? They are not Covid sanitized. A big fraud!” Trump wrote in his Tweet.
“This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about civic and election integrity. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible,” Twitter wrote in their warning about Trump’s Tweet…
This is not the first time that the platform has censored Trump because of comments he made about mail-in voting. Twitter redirected users to establishment propaganda in favor of mail-in voting earlier this year after Trump made a post about its dangers…
While Twitter considers President Trump’s attempts to protect the integrity of the U.S. elections a violation of their terms of service, they allow pedophiles to discuss raping children on their platform.
If President Trump loses next week’s election, the Orwellian Nightmare becomes the new normal, and Democrat traitors will be responsible for ushering in this permanent dystopia.
