Since twitter has locked out the NYPost for violating rules that no longer stand as rules (but twitter won't revisit past enforcement decisions) the NY Post COULD end this standoff by deleting the tweets that broke the rules (thus unlocking its account) then tweet them out again
2/ I asked a twitter exec if this was possible, he said yes and it would end the whole thing. Probably take 15 seconds.
3/ And yes twitter could end this immediately as well given that these rules are no longer rules. I’m just suggesting a possible way to end this. ✌️
4/ Since the usual bad faith actors are now depicting this as me telling the NYPost to bow to twitter to delete the tweets, i'm clearly not saying that -- i'm saying they can delete them *then tweet them out again.*

I agree twitter enforcing defunct rules makes no sense. Zero.
5/ I also don't think twitter should have blocked them to begin with. But this would be a way for NYPost to have cake and eat it too -- and get its twitter feed back. Just an idea. Don't like it? That's fine too.
