Twitter reversed course on Thursday and said that the social media giant would allow users to post a controversial New York post story damaging to the Joe Biden presidential campaign.

Twitter's head of legal, policy, trust and safety, Vijaya Gadde, tweeted Thursday evening that after much public input, they would be changing their policies to allow people to post the story and others like it.

On Wednesday Twitter clarified that they had banned the posting of the story because it included personal and private information, something that is prohibited by Twitter's terms of use. Critics of the social media giant accused it of banning the story in order to help Democrats and influence the election.

Gadde explained why the company decided to change course.
