    On Wednesday, Kanye West tweeted out the phone number belonging to a top editor at Forbes - an action known as "doxxing" that violates Twitter policies.
    The tweet - which called the editor a "white supremacist" and invited West's fans to call him - was up for 30 minutes and garnered more than 17,000 retweets before it was removed.
    West's longshot presidential campaign means that he is now the second US presidential candidate, after Donald Trump, to have a social media post taken down for violating policies.
