The Biden campaign said the meeting never occurred. It's now been revealed that Steve Bannon boasted about holding the material back in September, and the FBI is investigating whether it's a Russian propaganda and disinformation campaign. The corporate rolled again its overzealous crackdown amid backlash, which included a mea culpa from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
This allegation comes after when allies of Republic Party and president Donald Trump tried to portray a newspaper story on Joe Biden's son for the October surprise for the 2020 Presidential elections so that Democratic party and Joe Biden would be left with no time to recover from the news and the news would portray Joe Biden as impotent candidate for President, but Facebook and Twitter restrained the news distribution.
U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham and Republican Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley said on Thursday the committee would vote on Tuesday on sending a subpoena to Dorsey.
"Our goal is to attempt to add context, and now we have capabilities to do that", he tweeted. Twitter said the move was in line with its "Hacked Materials Policy, as well as our approach to blocking URLs, we are taking action to block any links to, or images of, the material in question on Twitter". A spokesperson for the company said the articles would still be blocked for "violating the rules on private personal information".
The New York Post has highlighted a number of tweets from twitter employees that would justify a ban from the platform, based on Twitter's own policies. The story has not been confirmed by other publications.
Twitter at first reacted by forbidding clients from sharing connects to the article in tweets and direct messages since it abused the organization's strategy denying hacked content.
In June, the platform further expanded its wrongthink-alert system, warning users when they attempted to share articles that were over 90 days old - regardless of whether they were true or not. A little over 24 hours later, Gadde announced the company was making changes after receiving significant feedback (from critical to supportive) about how it enforced the policy.
