After locking out White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany from her personal account Wednesday for posting the New York Post article on Hunter Biden’s emails, Twitter on Thursday locked out an official Trump campaign account, Team Trump, for posting a video based on the Post
article. The New York Post’s account has been locked by Twitter for nearly twenty-four hours over the article.
Mike Hahn, social media director for Team Trump made the announcement Thursday morning, “Twitter has suspended @TeamTrump for posting a video calling Joe Biden a liar who has been ripping off our country for years, as it relates to the @nypost article. 19 days out from the election.”
Campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh said the video featured Joe Biden denying he had anything to do with son Hunter’s foreign business dealings, “Twitter has locked out @TeamTrump for posting video of clips of Joe Biden lying about never speaking to Hunter about foreign business deals. Includes snips of @nypost exposing the lies. Biden doesn’t dispute the authenticity of the docs. STILL protecting Biden from bad story.”
President Trump tweeted the Team Trump video Wednesday night. The link to the video is dead, however Trump’s account has not been locked (yet).
Politico’s Alex Thompson reported Twitter’s Thursday morning statement on the lockouts, “Accounts that Tweet the materials or links to the materials referenced here may be required to delete those Tweets based on our policies on hacked materials and private and personal information.”
Twitter suspended OANN reporter Jack Posobiec Wednesday night for posting the Post article. He was let back on Twitter Thursday morning and posted the video clip of Andrew Breitbart declaring war.
