Far-left Twitter suspended the accounts of news organizations, top U.S. officials, reporters, and celebrities for sharing a bombshell story from the New York Post that alleged that Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden met with an executive at Burisma, the Ukrainian gas company that his son, Hunter Biden, worked at while Joe Biden served in the Obama administration.
Twitter’s interference in the election comes despite the fact that Politico reported that the Biden campaign “would not rule out the possibility that the former VP had some kind of informal interaction with” the executive at Burisma.
Twitter responded to the explosive story by suspending the Twitter accounts of the New York Post, officials in the Trump administration, reporters, and celebrities.
“The Post’s primary Twitter account (@nypost) has also been locked because the Hunter Biden stories violate its rules against ‘distribution of hacked material,’ per email we received from Twitter,” New York Post business reporter Noah Manskar tweeted. “Twitter says this was done because of the lack of authoritative reporting on where the materials in our Biden story originated. Per the story, the emails came off a copy of a hard drive obtained by Rudy Giuliani; original hard drive was left at a Delaware computer repair shop.”
