The Digital Civil War Has Begun After What Twitter Just Did To One Of The USA’s Largest Papers To Save Biden
The mask just fell off and it appears the digital civil war has begun.
The New York Post got an exclusive leak and obtained damaging documents that expose former Vice President Biden and his son. Now, Sohrab Ahmari, an editor for New York can’t publish updates on their bombshell. Later, Twitter locked the New York Post out completely, meaning they can’t access the platform at all.
Ahmari posted a screenshot after he attempted to post another story documenting the Biden family corruption.

Another user on Twitter posted a video that when he attempts to post the Biden story it just disappears.
Guys, you might want to see this. I don’t even get an error message saying I am unable to tweet the content now. Neat.@SohrabAhmari @Vermeullarmine @GrayConnolly pic.twitter.com/P3rJKSCzWZ

They didn’t just stop the article from being posted they locked the New York Post out of their account.
Twitter isn’t just preventing its users from accessing material critical to making an informed decision in an election, they’ve locked out the @nypost from its account for deigning to report embarrassing details about Twitter’s preferred candidate https://t.co/8DQej7hfr6

It’s not just the right that was up in arms, Alex Thompson from Politico and Krystal Ball from The Hill voiced their disappointment.
Wow. twitter going even further than FB and is no longer letting ppl tweet the NYPost story. This is what pops up if you try. https://t.co/YVlOTeF1iX pic.twitter.com/66kzYdwq21

This is completely insane and will 100% come back to bite the left. Censorship always ends up being a tool for preserving the status quo. Mark my words. https://t.co/zsYFWZm9Qw

Opinion writer for Bloomberg News, Eli Lake was also furious with Twitter’s decision.
Just tried to tweet the @nypost story about Hunter’s laptop and was told I cannot because “the link has been identified by twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful.” The only reason I wanted to tweet the story is because it was being censored.

According to the New York Post there is a lot more and now they are on a mission a source said, “There is so much more coming on the Bidens in this leak. This is the Pelican Brief.”

Whatever the Post has it must be really bad for Biden because we’ve never seen the tech giants act like this before.
