Censorship: New York Post has been locked out of its Twitter account for six days

Last Wednesday the New York Post, America's oldest daily newspaper and currently its fourth-most-read, which was founded by Alexander Hamilton, published a blockbuster story about a laptop that once belonged to Hunter Biden that contained emails that confirmed the former vice president's son's role as an influence peddler. Twitter blocked the Tweeting of the story for a while and Facebook blocked posting and sharing of it. The media, with a few exceptions, has been minimizing or ignoring the Hunter story, or fabricating details, such as the scandal simply is nothing more than Russian interference

Sheesh. How 'bout some originality? We've heard that lie before.

Since the story broke the Post, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp, has not been able to post new entries on Twitter. 

This is censorship, plain and simple.

But wasn't the New York Post still available online and in print? They just weren't allowed to use Twitter as a free advertisement for their news? No one is stopping them from creating their own Twitter or Facebook-type app, what with the free market and all. Not sure why there's a complaint. Sounds like an anti-capitalist stance to me.
