Not one of the Fox News verified Twitter accounts has tweeted since last Thursday.
In an internal memo last week obtained by Business Insider, Fox News managing editor Greg Wilson instructed the entire Fox News digital team to “please refrain from tweeting out our content from either section accounts or your own accounts until further notice.”
It’s unclear when/if the Fox News Twitter blackout will be lifted, and you’ll start seeing tweets being pushed out once again.
Here’s the most recent tweet sent from the verified @FoxNews account

The decision by Wilson was reportedly made in protest of the social media network after threats were made to Tucker Carlson’s home address was posted publicly on Twitter, and had not been taken down by the site’s moderators by the time the Smash Racism DC mob gathered in front of his home last Wednesday evening and chanted threats at him and his family.
According to National Review, the self-described “anti-fascist” group chanted: “Tucker Carlson, we will fight!” “We know where you sleep at night!” The group was protesting the immigration policies he parrots on his 8 p.m. Fox News program.
