Twitter and Facebook's action over Joe Biden article reignites bias claims – BBC News

The way Twitter communicated its handling of a controversial article about US presidential hopeful Joe Biden was “unacceptable”, its chief has said.

On Wednesday, Twitter prevented people from posting links to a New York Post story, warning those trying to click it that the link was “potentially unsafe”.

It only later explained it had limited sharing because the story contained “hacked materials”.

Facebook also took action, limiting the report’s distribution in its news feed.

It said it had done this as part of a “standard process” to give third-party fact-checkers time to review the content and decide if it should be treated as misinformation.

However, it is highly unusual for an article published by one of the mainstream popular newspapers to be treated in this way.

It is now less than three weeks until Mr Biden, the Democratic candidate, faces the Republican incumbent Donald Trump in the presidential election on 3 November.

The moves by Twitter and Facebook have renewed accusations of social media censorship and bias.

    There's something just deeply displeasant about Biden, all I'll say is he's got a good team of lackey's who cover up his misdemeanors well, but watch the allegations of whatever come crawling out the woodwork if he gets elected as POTUS.

    You may think Trumps bad but you ain't seen nothing yet once the shit hits the fan for Biden, just wait and see.

    If your reporter had studied the case, she wouldn’t have used the “hacking” in her report. How can you literally liars in front of people who following the news every day? Why the BBC stand by the lefties? Why? 💰

    They messed up big time, finally proved to all that they really are, liberal leftist leaning and not unbais at all.

    What about trumps illegally obtained tax records did that violate anything or the Atlantic’s already debunked story on trump calling veterans losers when they published it. The bias is real and dangerously close to having an irreparable effect on the public’s trust of the media.

    Except the Lord Jesus Christ as he is the lam and is the hadjl, the gospel of your salvation. Not any religion can save you. We were all deceived by Satan and his devisions many people worship false Gods, follow false doctrine, have idols, worship deities and practise many religions.
    Jesus christ is not a religion and hated religion, as it is false. Catholics and al other nominations, Buddhist, Hinduism, New Age are all manmade beliefs based on each cultures and holy scriptures. There is only one that can save, as he rose from the dead, so we can defeat it also.  The only prophet and the son of men of the living God written about in the KJV Holy Bible.
    The God of Israel. The God of all creation, The Word that was made flesh in Jesus Christ.
    Amen.

    Only born again Christians are on the path of salvation. It's you in Christ and Christ in you. By doing the will of God the father with help from the Holy spirit. Formost believing that he is the only anointed able to forgive sins, not the pope or bishop. They honour Mary and Saints over Jesus Christ, Emanuel, Son of Man, Prince of Peace, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords our true saviour. Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
    Believe in the finished work on the cross. Heal the sick and cast devils out. Do good works, but abide in his sabbath rest, as he abides with the spirit in you. 24/7.
    Have your mind renewed and do what Jesus says you should do.
    Amen.
    There is only one father and that is in heaven. We honour, Father son and Holy Spirit.
    Amen.
    I recommend Curry Blake, DHT, for a awakening.
    keep up with the good work for the kingdom of God

    Praise the Lord Jesus Christ and his church and ministries, with regards to his saints, angels and prophets of righteousness.  Bless Gods kingdom and his Holy spirit.  Bless all the children on the earth, and the young, old and those with infirmities,and those suffering bondage, hunger, famine, war and imprisonment.
    I pray for the lost, all back sliders, and all The nations and its leaders. I pray for all my brothers and sisters in the faith, all unbelievers and sinners.  I pray for my kids, family, extended family, friends neighbour's, enemies  and those of Christ.
    Hallelujah praise his mighty name and bless those that read this. Jesus loves you all. Amen. Xxx
