Twitter is now officially on a censorship hot streak.
Twitter is not censoring access to this new Post story. Which means, according to their own new rules ‚Äď The story is accurate. The emails are authentic. The materials were not hacked. https://t.co/0HzpBWLqyJ

Well, ackshually ‚Ä¶
After doing their best to keep people from sharing ‚ÄĒ and reading ‚ÄĒ the New York Post‚Äôs ‚Äúsmoking gun‚ÄĚ scoop on Hunter Biden‚Äôs email purportedly showing that he arranged a meeting between Joe Biden and a Burisma exec, Twitter is now trying to keep readers away from the New York Post‚Äôs scoop today on Hunter Biden and China:
Since @nypost hasn't posted in 17 hours, I'll assume they're still locked. Their lead article today: "Emails reveal how Hunter Biden tried to cash in big on behalf of family with Chinese firm" https://t.co/zBi4PNuuKT

Looks normal there, but what happens if you try to click on the link to the story?
They're blocking the new @nypost article from today, too.

Twitter is now blocking direct links to the NY Post's follow up story on the Hunter Biden emails.
Outrageous and short-sighted.

And par for the course now.
What gets me about Twitter is that they can't possibly think blocking the link on their site is going to stop the story from spreading in various other ways. It's just some kind of virtue signaling that they're being "responsible."
