Twitter bosses irrational statement for why he continues to block the NY Post

 Megan Fox:

...

 Facebook and Twitter were caught limiting the reach of the article, which prompted a Senate inquiry. Ted Cruz came out swinging, calling Twitter “the biggest threat to free and fair elections” facing America today. He also set Jack Dorsey’s overlong beard on fire with this blistering observation about the power of Twitter to police speech in America.

“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, silencing the views to the contrary of your political beliefs?” Cruz asked in one of the more heated exchanges of the hearing.

The New York Post was founded by Alexander Hamilton,” said Cruz. “And your position is that you can sit in Silicon Valley and demand that the media— that you can tell them what stories they can publish and you can tell the American public what stories they can hear, is that right?”

Dorsey denied it all and claimed he didn’t do what we all saw him do. The New York Post is still blocked from posting on Twitter because they refuse to delete the original tweet that got them in trouble in the first place. But why should they delete it? Dorsey admits that blocking it was a mistake. We need more answers.

 Dorsey did not come off as credible in any way during the hearing. In fact, while testifying, the New York Post fact-checked him on the spot and found him to be lying.

“Jack Dorsey of Twitter just told Senator Cruz that anyone could now share the NY Post’s bombshell stories on Twitter. Dorsey is lying,” tweeted Abigail Marone, a rapid response official on President Trump’s re-election campaign, linking to a screen recording of the app blocking the post.

“Twitter is STILL blocking the URL for the NY Post story about the Biden’s foreign corruption & China dealings,” Marone wrote in a tweet shared by White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on her personal account.

Users were not able to share a link to the article on the proposed China business deal up until just hours ago, which last week was corroborated by former Hunter Biden business partner Tony Bobulinski.

“Something went wrong, but don’t fret — let’s give it another shot,” an error message informed Twitter users.

Twitter said of the article: “We can’t complete this request because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful. Visit our Help Center to learn more.”

Sen. Cruz also fact-checked Dorsey, noting that it’s a felony to lie under oath to the Senate:

 

Will Dorsey be held to account for lying under oath like General Flynn and Roger Stone were? I’m not optimistic.

Dorsey’s repeated claims that he is not interested in anyone’s political leanings fall on skeptical ears. We still remember that Dorsey gave ten million dollars to race-baiting “research” that supports and bolsters the Marxist BLM organization’s goals. We know which side he’s on. Pretending that this guy can be the emperor of everyone’s speech in America is a joke.

... 

Dorsey's requirement that the NY Post delete its original Tweet makes no sense.  He says it is part of their rules for reinstatement but he apparently makes the rules and this one is arbitrary and capricious.  It is a rule that makes no sense because there was nothing wrong with the original Tweet.
