The New York Post is still locked out of its Twitter account for a second week, according to the Washington Examiner. 

Twitter has blocked the media outlet from accessing its account after it published and shared stories regarding a laptop that was reportedly owned by Hunter Biden. New York Post's deputy politics editor Emma-Jo Morris co-wrote the article and one of the two journalists with a byline on the stories about the laptop and its hard drive, documented the timeline in a tweet.

"The Democratic nominee for President is calling this story a 'Russian disinformation campaign.' Twitter has revoked NY Post account access for 2 weeks over it," Morris tweeted.

During a Wednesday testimony before the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) questioned Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on why the social media platform continues to suspend the New York Post account.

"Today, right now, the New York Post is still blocked from tweeting, two weeks later," Cruz said.

Dorsey responded, "Yes, they have to log into their account, which they can do at this minute, delete the original tweet, which fell under our original enforcement actions, and they can tweet the exact same material from the exact same article, and it would go through."

To which Cruz replied, "So Mr. Dorsey, your ability is you have the power to force a media outlet — let's be clear, the New York Post isn't just some random guy tweeting. The New York Post has the fourth-highest circulation of any newspaper in America. The New York Post is over 200 years old. The New York Post was founded by Alexander Hamilton. And your position is that you can sit in Silicon Valley and demand of the media that you can tell them what stories they can publish and you can tell the American people what reporting you can hear. Is that right?"
