Discussing vaccine dangers on Twitter is now prohibited, so how will people learn the truth about COVID-19 vaccine side effects?

On Dec. 16, just a few days after President Donald Trump’s “Operation Warp Speed” Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines were unveiled and unleashed, Twitter made an announcement that it has begun to “prioritize the removal of the most harmful misleading information” about the dangers and ineffectiveness of the jabs.

In addition to labeling tweets “that contain potentially misleading information about the vaccines,” Twitter has decided to go a step further by actively removing all content from the platform that in any way calls into question Trump’s “coof” inoculations.

“In the context of a global pandemic, vaccine misinformation presents a significant and growing public health challenge – and we all have a role to play,” Twitter contends.

“We are focused on mitigating misleading information that presents the biggest potential harm to people’s health and wellbeing. Twitter has an important role to play as a place for good faith public debate and discussion around these critical public health matters.”

Twitter’s official policy prior to Dec. 16 included the removal of all tweets that include “false or misleading” information about:

• The “nature” of COVID-19, including how it supposedly spreads within communities
• The safety and / or efficacy of “preventative measures, treatments, or other precautions to mitigate or treat the disease
• Official government “regulations, restrictions, or exemptions pertaining to health advisories;” and
• The “prevalence or risk of infection or death”

As of Dec. 16, however, Twitter will now be removing tweets that claim COVID-19 vaccines are being “used to intentionally harm … or control populations,” along with any statements that “invoke a deliberate conspiracy.”

Twitter also now has a no-tolerance policy for statements about the COVID-19 vaccine that has been “widely debunked,” such as that a person might experience “adverse impacts or effects” following vaccination.

Should a Twitter user claim that “COVID-19 is not real or not serious, and therefore … vaccinations are unnecessary,” this, too, will be immediately removed from the platform as a “false claim.”
