Twitter Reportedly Suspends Trump’s Official Campaign Account Over Video Relating To NY Post’s Hunter Biden Report

Twitter reportedly suspended President Donald Trump’s official campaign account Thursday after it posted a video relating to the NY Post’s report on Hunter Biden.

The report, which came out Wednesday, alleges that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, met with a Burisma executive in 2015. Twitter began to censor the story on its platform and then suspended multiple accounts who had shared the post.

“Twitter has suspended @TeamTrump for posting a video calling Joe Biden a liar who has been ripping off our country for years, as it related to the @nypost article,” Mike Hahn, a social media person for the Trump campaign, tweeted. “19 days out from the election.”

The tweet included a screenshot that appears to show a notice from Twitter confirming the “Team Trump” account was “locked.”

Twitter wrote in the notice that the video violates its “rules agains posting private information.” The social media mogul tweeted an extensive explanation for why it was censoring the post Wednesday evening, citing a violation of its “Hacked Materials Policy.”

“The images contained in the articles include personal and private information — like email addresses and phone numbers — which violate our rules. As noted this morning, we also currently view materials included in the articles as violations of our Hacked Materials Policy,” according to Twitter.
