"How tweet it is: Twitter backs down, unlocks Post’s account By Bruce Golding October 30, 2020 | 6:00pm | Updated Twitter backed down Friday in its battle with The Post and unlocked its main account after a two-week stalemate over the Hunter Biden exposé. The move came after The Post refused Twitter’s demand that it delete six tweets that linked to stories that the company claimed — without any evidence — were based on hacked information. The Post never budged, and kept the tweets on the account during the standoff — even as Twitter obscured them from view. In a series of tweets, the social-media giant said it was revising its “Hacked Materials Policy” and “updating our practice of not retroactively overturning prior enforcement.” “Our policies are living documents,” said one of the tweets from @TwitterSafety. “We’re willing to update and adjust them when we encounter new scenarios or receive important feedback from the public.” The Post immediately celebrated the victory with a tweet declaring “We’re baaaaaaack” and an image of the tabloid’s Saturday front page, with the headline “FREE BIRD!” https://nypost.com/2020/10/30/twitter-backs-down-agrees-to-unlock-posts-account/ "
