In this news, we discuss the Donald Trump claims he is coronavirus immune, Twitter says don’t misinform people.
Twitter continues to add warning labels against tweets that may spread coronavirus misinformation. Twitter, Sunday, reported one of US President Donald Trump’s posts for violating his rules amid COVID-19 disinformation. The Trump in a tweet had said: “Full and complete approval from White House doctors yesterday. It means I can’t get it (immune), and can’t give it. Very nice to know !!! “
Tweet added a disclaimer to the tweet, “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules for disseminating misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19[FEMININEHoweverTwitterhasdeterminedthatitmaybeinthepublicinterestfortheTweettoremainaccessible”Howeverviewerscanstillreadthetweetbyclickingonit[FEMININEcependantTwitteradéterminéqu’ilpeutêtredansl’intérêtdupublicqueleTweetresteaccessible”Cependantlestéléspectateurspeuventtoujourslireletweetencliquantdessus
This is not the first time that Twitter or even social media giant Facebook deleted or flagged a message. Last week Trump took Facebook and Twitter, and wrote, “Flu season is approaching! Many people each year, sometimes over 100,000 people, and despite the vaccine, die from influenza. Are we going to close our country? No, we have learned to live with it, just like we learn to live with Covid, in most populations that are much less lethal !!! ” While Facebook deleted the message, Twitter hid the message with the same warning “dissemination of misleading and potentially harmful information”.
This time, Trump’s claim that he is now “immune” to the coronavirus must have gotten the tweet because there have been documented cases of re-infected coronavirus patients.
In a novel coronavirus pandemic situation, the internet is the primary source of information where social media tries to behave responsibly. In reality, Twitter in an update tightened the rules for spreading disinformation and asked users to quote tweets and “add their own comment” to tweets before retweeting someone.
