Following Facebook, Twitter is the latest social media platform to crack down on the ability of users to share a recent New York Post article highlighting how the son of Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden used his father’s position in government as a point of leverage in business dealings.
The bombshell article – “Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad” – can no longer be linked to on Twitter just hours after publcation. If users attempt to share the piece, they’re promptly met with a notification that the “tweet could not be sent because the link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful.”
