“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.”

“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.”
