Twitter blocked President Trump whistleblower tweet
President Trump tweet that identified an intelligence analyst as the alleged whistleblower who helped spark his impeachment was temporarily blocked, with Twitter blaming an outage that affected a number of user accounts.
“Due to an outage with one of our systems, tweets on account profiles were visible to some, but not others,” Twitter Support said. “We’re still working on fixing this and apologize for any confusion.”
Mark Zaid, one of the whistleblower’s lawyers, said on Twitter in early November that Republicans had “sought to expose our client’s identity which could jeopardize their safety, as well as that of their family.”
On Friday, President Trump retweeted a post from a pro-Trump account that featured the same name prominently, and that has also shared photos of a person who is alleged was the whistleblower.
