Twitter Removes Lincoln Project Tweet With Trump Lawyers' Contact Info

Twitter Removes Lincoln Project Tweet With Trump Lawyers' Contact Info

By    |   Tuesday, 10 November 2020 06:05 PM

Twitter has removed a tweet from the Lincoln Project that exposed the contact information of two attorneys who are currently representing President Donald Trump, a practice known as “doxxing,” the Washington Examiner reports.

The official Twitter account for the Lincoln Project, an anti-Trump political action group created by several former Republicans, posted the phone numbers and emails of two lawyers with the law firm Porter Wright Morris & Arthur, who are both representing Trump, with the message: "Here are two attorneys attempting to help Trump overturn the will of the Pennsylvanian people. Make them famous."

The Examiner notes that “doxxing” is defined by Merriam-Webster as “to publicly identify or publish private information about (someone) especially as a form of punishment or revenge.”

A spokesperson for Twitter told the Examiner: "The account owner will be required to delete the violative tweet before regaining access to their account.”
