Get access to Protocol
Twitter briefly suspended the Trump campaign's official account on Thursday after Team Trump posted a video referencing the banned Hunter Biden story.
"Accounts that Tweet the materials or links to the materials referenced here may be required to delete those Tweets based on our policies on hacked materials and private and personal information," a Twitter spokesperson said.
Twitter reinstated the account after the campaign removed the violating tweet.
But the campaign immediately reposted the video. "We are back and we are re-posting the video Twitter doesn't want you to watch," Team Trump tweeted.
