This Is Why Twitter Blocks Donald Trump's Campaign Team Account

 The Twitter account of the US President Donald Trump campaign team was blocked for a while by the social media site yesterday after uploading a video about the son of Presidential candidate Joe Biden, Hunter Biden.


Twitter informed that the video had violated the law of the site.


The video refers to an article published by the New York Post yesterday claiming that Hunter was dealing with an energy company from Ukraine and Joe allegedly met with the company's advisers.


According to a New York Post report, Hunter was alleged to be a board member of the company Burisma Holdings shortly after former US President Barack Obama instructed Joe to manage US relations with Ukraine in 2014.


Hunter reportedly receives more than US $ 166,000 a month from the company. The allegations were reinforced when Joe urged the Ukrainian government to sack the country's leading prosecutor Viktor Shokin for being involved in an investigation into Burisma in 2018.


However, Joe's campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement that Joe had never met with the company's advisers and the Senate committee had also ruled that Joe was not involved in the meeting.



In addition to the Trump campaign team's accounts, accounts belonging to White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany and the New York Post were also blocked for allegedly disseminating content in the form of personal information and hacked material.


A Twitter spokesperson explained that all accounts involved need to delete comments that violate the site's rules before being allowed to resubmit comments.


Meanwhile, US Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell said restrictions on news about Hunter Biden were inappropriate and there should be no ‘speech police’ in the US.
