Twitter censors The National Pulse editor-in-chief Raheem Kassam for distributing "hacked materials": Editor-in-chief of The National Pulse Raheem Kassam was censored by Twitter, according to purported screenshots and his reporting. He had tweeted "Fox News internal email appears to suggest their senior correspondent thinks the KGB still exists," along with an image of the email that he claimed he received directly from a Fox News insider.  According to the screenshots that he produced, Twitter claimed that this was a violation of its "rules against distribution of hacked materials." Kassam's account was locked until he deleted the tweet, and was then restricted to a read-only mode for 12 hours, also according to the purported screenshots. According to The Post Millennial, Kassam explained that the email was sent to him from someone who works at Fox, and he told the outlet that he considers the insinuation that it was "hacked material" to be "libellous [sic] at a minimum." In contrast, Twitter did nothing to stop the sharing of the names of donors to the Canadian trucker convoy, which were clearly hacked materials.
