On Thursday, Twitter reportedly block accounts owned by the Trump campaign, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and The New York Post for sharing a story that contains hacked emails about Hunter Biden.
Politico correspondent Alex Thompson noted that the accounts had been suspended.
“Update on this-basically, @nypost @teamtrump @kayleighmcenany are locked until they delete tweets about the NYPost article, Twitter tells me,” Thompson explained in a tweet. “Twitter spokesperson: ‘Accounts that Tweet the materials or links to the materials referenced here may be required to delete those Tweets.’”
While the three accounts had been blocked, Donald Trump’s account remained active despite the fact that he shared the same video on his Twitter page.
quote cont. "delete those Tweets based on our policies on hacked materials and private and personal information."

Twitter temporarily blocked a Trump campaign account @teamtrump for posting a video that is currently pinned to the top of President Trump’s Twitter account, which is not blocked. Fascinating showdown taking place just a few weeks before the election. https://t.co/TT5i0ZjLPL
