Twitter censors Michael Coudrey for posting the NY Post Hunter Biden story: Twitter served a seven-day account restriction to Michael Coudrey, CEO of Pharos Investment Group, for tweeting about the NY Post's Hunter Biden expose. He made two tweets about the story that got his account into trouble with Twitter for violating its "rules against distribution of hacked material." The first tweet said: "How did an unstable crack addict who impregnated a stripper end up to be on the board of one of Ukraine's most powerful energy companies? Well, the answer is bribery, corruption, pay-for-play, and a father who was a US Vice President presiding over US-Ukraine policy." The other offending tweet said: "BOMBSHELL: Here is the LEAKED email sowing how Hunter Biden was bribed/paid salary for Burma & then exchanged this for access to then Vice President Joe Biden. Joe Biden later threatened Ukraine with official US action if the prosecutor investigating Burisma wasn't fired. RT!" Twitter addressed the alleged violation of its "hacked material policy" in a couple of tweets, saying that it "currently view[s] materials included in the [NY Post] articles as violations of our Hacked Materials Policy" and that "Commentary on or discussion about hacked materials, such as articles that cover them but do not include or link to the materials themselves, aren’t a violation of this policy. Our policy only covers links to or images of hacked material themselves."
