Twitter says it will start removing COVID-19 vaccine misinformation
Twitter announced Wednesday that it will remove tweets making false or misleading claims about COVID-19 vaccinations.
Any tweets claiming that vaccines “intentionally cause harm to control populations” or invoke conspiracy theories will be subject to removal, according to Twitter’s blog post. Tweets falsely suggesting that COVID-19 doesn’t exist or espouse “widely debunked” claims may also be removed. Enforcement of the new policy will begin next week.
