Reports surfaced on Wednesday that Twitter has begun placing a warning on links to CPAC’s official website. When users try to click on a link for the Conservative Political Action Conference, they are greeted with a warning that says:

Warning: this link may be unsafe

http://www.CPAC.org

The link you are trying to access has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially spammy or unsafe, in accordance with Twitter’s URL Policy. This link could fall into any of the below categories:

  • malicious links that could steal personal information or harm electronic devices
  • spammy links that mislead people or disrupt their experience
  • violent or misleading content that could lead to real-world harm
  • certain categories of content that, if posted directly on Twitter, are a violation of the Twitter Rules

The issue was highlighted by journalist Jason Rantz, who pointed out that users are warned not to go to the website.

Twitter’s warning to users follows its suspension of journalistic watchdog Project Veritas for “doxing” after it allegedly shared “private information” of a Facebook employee without consent. The group questioned Facebook’s Vice President of Integrity Guy Rosen outside his home about the platform’s alleged censorship of conservatives.
