Cruz called out Dorsey for crossing “a threshold that is fundamental in our country,” by censoring the story and the New York Post.
“Mr. Dorsey, who the hell elected you? And put you in charge of what the media are allowed to report, and what the American people are allowed to hear… and why do you persist in behaving as a Democratic super PAC?” Cruz said.

When the Hunter Biden story first broke the emails recovered came from a laptop obtained from a computer repair shop, they weren’t hacked as claimed by the mainstream media at the time. The information was leaked to Rudy Giuliani and given to the New York Times. The initial story written by the Post clearly documented how they obtained the data.
“They weren’t hiding what they claimed to be the source,” Cruz argued to Dorsey. “Is it is your position that Twitter, when you can’t tell the source, blocks press stories?”
Dorsey denied it.
“Our team made a fast decision on the enforcement action over blocking URLs, both in tweets and in direct messages,” Dorsey said. “We believe was incorrect, and we changed it.”
Dorsey said that the Post can return to Twitter once they delete the original post about the Hunter Biden story.
“They have to log into their account which they can do at this minute, delete the original tweet which fell under our original enforcement actions, and they can tweet the exact same material to the exact same article and it would go through,” Dorsey said.

Side note I wasn’t the only one thinking Dorsey looked like he was high as a kite.
This level of idiocy confirms the widespread impression that Jack’s primary food source is weed https://t.co/EREVsyKLty
