Twitter on Wednesday took the highly unusual step of blocking links to a thinly sourced New York Post article that appears to have connections to a Russian disinformation campaign targeting Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

A Twitter spokesperson told HuffPost that the article violated the company's Hacked Materials Policy, noting in particular an absence of information on the origins of the materials that formed the basis of the Post's reporting.

Readers who attempted to share the story on Twitter were met with a warning that read, "We can't complete this request because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful."
