Twitter's censorship of a news article sharing White House adviser Stephen Miller's phone number is leading to more questions about the social media platform's priorities.

The number was published by Splinter, a website under the umbrella of Gizmodo Media Group, in an article titled, "Here's Stephen MIller's Cell Phone Number, If You Need It".

Many Republicans have voiced concerns about the president's "zero-tolerance" policy at the border which led to the separating of families and the detaining of young children and babies.

"[For] Miller, the public outrage and anger elicited by policies like forced family separation are a feature, not a bug", wrote McKay Coppins.

"As long as the president allows Steve Miller and others to run the show down there, we're never gonna get anywhere", said South Carolina GOP Sen. So news website Splinter responded Wednesday by publishing his personal phone number, suggesting readers "call him about it".

I felt so bad when it came out in the press - " Foo Fighters had a awful time, they hated the whole fucking thing". They cycled through "A Hard Day's Night", "Love Me Do" and "Back the USSR", as onlookers filled the pub.

Shortly after the article was published, left-wing journalists began to share it across Twitter, which resulted in Miller's phone being inundated with aggressive phone calls and texts.

Coffman's singling out of Miller perhaps represents the GOP wanting to distance itself further from the more fringe actors in Trump's administration, who all too often have been deeply influential. Lindsey Graham's and Univision anchor Jorge Ramos' numbers in 2016.

"And the President should fire Stephen Miller now", Coffman added.

Twitter users who retweeted the original tweet found their accounts were being suspended and some users complained their accounts were being locked not for posting the private information but rather for pointing to a site that held the information, the report said.
