Twitter on Thursday reportedly blocked accounts owned by the Trump campaign, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany and The New York Post for sharing a story that contains hacked emails about Hunter Biden.
Politico correspondent Alex Thompson revealed that the accounts had been blocked.

"Twitter spokesperson: 'Accounts that Tweet the materials or links to the materials referenced here may be required to delete those Tweets.'"
