Twitter reverses policy on hacked content after Hunter Biden backlash

Senator Josh Hawley, a Missouri Republican, has called on Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to testify before the Senate Committee on the Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism over supposed election interference.

Twitter on Wednesday started blocking the link, citing a policy forbidding users from sharing another person's personal information without their consent, and a separate policy forbidding the sharing of hacked documents.

As Business Insider previously reported, there are multiple red flags concerning the supposed leaked emails and The New York Post reports, including whether the leaked emails are legitimate, how they were obtained, and who obtained them.

"So bad that Facebook and Twitter took down the story of "Smoking Gun" emails related to Sleepy Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in the NYPost", he tweeted.

Under Twitter's revised policy, it will no longer remove hacked content "unless it is directly shared by hackers or those acting in concert with them", Vijaya Gadde, Twitter's head of legal, policy and trust, and safety, wrote in a thread.

Facebook limited the spread of the story hours after it was published.

Twitter added to the controversy when it blocked links to Post articles about the revelations, a decision the social media platform later backtracked.

On Friday, Schiff said that Russian Federation has an "obvious interest" in denigrating Biden and wants Trump to win. It's unclear whether or not Trump understood that article was satire, given his remark: "Wow, this has by no means been accomplished in historical past".

But late on Thursday, Twitter announced that it will make changes to that policy and its enforcement. The Biden campaign and a lawyer for Hunter Biden said they had no record of such a meeting taking place.

Citing conversations with four former officials familiar with the matter, the Post said that USA intelligence agencies warned the White House that Giuliani "was the target of an influence operation by Russian intelligence" in which Trump was the intended recipient of the misinformation.

Despite U.S. intelligence agencies repeatedly warning Trump and Giuliani the theory was false, both consistently amplified the conspiracy.
