DAMAGE CONTROL! Twitter reverses course on New York Post story, says it will no longer block hacked content | Tech News


Wow, what a difference 24 hours make! After a lot of pressure and backlash from millions or Twitter users, Twitter announced this evening that it’s making   major changes to “hacked material” policies after ‘significant feedback.’ The announcement came after massive backlash to the censorship of a New York Post story about former Vice President Biden. It seems Twitter also changed its tune after following calls for for a Congressional subpoena

In a series of tweets, Vijaya Gadde, Legal, Policy and Trust & Safety Lead, said:

“Over the last 24 hours, we’ve received significant feedback (from critical to supportive) about how we enforced our Hacked Materials Policy yesterday. After reflecting on this feedback, we have decided to make changes to the policy and how we enforce it.”
