Looks like Twitter is no longer censoring this: https://t.co/S65GCM9TbZ

In a stunning reversal, Twitter has announced that it will no longer censor the bombshell New York Post story about VP Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.
The Post reportedly extensively this week on emails that appear to be from an old laptop belonging to the younger Biden, and that paint a picture of the Biden family benefitting extensively from influence peddling to foreign officials.
When the news first broke, Twitter (along with Facebook and YouTube) blocked links to the story, and suspended and banned accounts that attempted to share it, calling the content “unsafe.”
The Biden campaign, while calling the story part of a “smear campaign,” to date, has not disputed the authenticity of the emails.
The reversal by Twitter came in the wake of the Senate Judiciary Committee subpoenaing Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
Dorsey along with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Google head Sundar Pichai of Google, will appear virtually on Oct. 28 before the Committee to discuss the reformation of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which protects the social media platforms from liability.
