[Ed. – Twitter is still doing weird things with user accounts as Election Day nears, but the 20% plunge in Twitter’s share price may have pushed the company over the threshold to stop acting stupidly with NY Post.]
The move came after The Post refused Twitter’s demand that it delete six tweets that linked to stories that the company claimed — without any evidence — were based on hacked information.
The Post never budged, and kept the tweets on the account during the standoff — even as Twitter obscured them from view.
In a series of tweets, the social-media giant said it was revising its “Hacked Materials Policy” and “updating our practice of not retroactively overturning prior enforcement.”
“Our policies are living documents,” said one of the tweets from @TwitterSafety.
