The New York Post’s Twitter account was finally unlocked after it was blocked for promoting its bombshell news about Hunter Biden and former Vice President Joe Biden.

The New York Post’s Twitter account was suspended for two weeks following a news story by the media outlet exposing Hunter’s foreign business deals that leveraged his father’s name.
In addition, emails and text messages from Hunter’s computer that was the basis of the story showed Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden lied to Americans about his son. Joe Biden has repeatedly said he was unaware of his son’s business deals but the information on the computer speaks otherwise.
Twitter initially demanded the New York Post delete their original tweet about the Biden’s for the media outlet to resume access to their account but the company backed down on their request.
Twitter also blocked users from sharing the New York Post’s links on the story.
Blocking the New York Post story about the Biden’s raised more concern about the influence of left-wing Silicon Valley companies interfering in the up coming elections.
A Senate Committee took action.
Twitter, Google and Facebook CEOs testified earlier this week before the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee over partisan censorship.
The Deseret News reports:
“Given the disparate impact of who gets censored on your platforms, it seems that you’re either one, not enforcing your terms of service equally, or alternatively, two, that you’re writing your standards to target conservative viewpoints,” Sen, Mike Lee, R-Utah, told the executives.
During the Senate hearing, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) questioned Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and during his testimony under oath, Dorsey lied about users ability to tweet the New York Post’s news about the Biden’s.
18 USC 1621 makes it a felony to lie under oath to the Senate. https://t.co/BDHRB8CEzy

The New York Post is the first media outlet to report on the Biden’s questionable business deals and should be praised for doing what other media outlets refuse to do.
Twitter’s initial reaction to block the story shows the company is playing politics with its platform.
