Twitter Restricts Kanye West From Tweeting After Sharing Journalists Phone Number
Kanye West has been on a Twitter ranting spree for some days now. Making it a mission to help artists amass more wealth from their songs. He’s called out Sony, Universal and more giant record labels for their supposed shady deals.
According to CNN’s senior media reporter Oliver Darcy, Kanye West was put on notice by Twitter and reportedly restricted from tweeting any further after ‘Ye shared a screenshot of Forbes Chief Content Officer’s Randall Lane’s contact information including a phone number. “If any of my fans want to call a white supremacist… This is the editor of Forbes,” Ye tweeted.
Darcy wrote, “Twitter is requiring @kanyewest to remove a tweet sharing private info about @RandallLane (which Twitter has hidden from public view for now) to regain access to his account. Until then, he cannot tweet.”
In a tweet that followed, he added that this is simply Twitter’s policy when someone, you know, tries doxing someone else. “Also, FWIW, this is how Twitter always enforces its rules. The company hides tweets that break its rules from public view, and locks the account until the owner logs on and removes the tweet,” Darcy added.
Well, Kanye is yet to delete the tweet about Lane but Twitter did flag the tweet. “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules,” it reads.
Also, FWIW, this is how Twitter always enforces its rules. The company hides tweets that break its rules from public view, and locks the account until the owner logs on and removes the tweet.
