Twitter lifted a freeze it placed on the account of the New York Post after the newspaper published articles about president elect Joe Biden’s son.

The New York Post can now send tweets again, the social media platform said. On Oct. 14, Twitter had said the stories violated its hacked materials policy.

‘We will no longer restrict their account under the terms of the previous policy and they can now tweet again,’ Twitter said. 

The New York Post tweeted a picture featuring Twitter’s bird logo flying out of a cage, with the caption ‘Twitter backs down, finally unlocks Post account after Biden ban.’

News Corp, which owns the New York Post, said Twitter’s decision had a negative commercial impact on the newspaper but that its decision today is an important moment for freedom of the press.

‘The arbitrary blocking of the Post was a significant moment during a critical time in this election season,’ News Corp said in a statement.
