Twitter Kicks COVID Misinformation Policy
(NEWSnet) — Twitter's long-run effort to prevent COVID-19 misinformation is at an end for now.
Twitter users noticed Monday night that the social media platform updated its transparency site to say it stopped enforcing its COVID misinformation policy on Nov. 23.
It's not clear if the company will restore any accounts banned for sharing misinformation as part of Musk's planned amnesty.
Since cracking down on misinformation in January 2020, it has banned 11,200 accounts and taken down 97,000 examples of false content. It also gave 11.7 million accounts warnings.
