Twitter flagged Donald Trump’s tweet after the President made the false declare that he’s now immune from getting the coronavirus.
The warning that Twitter placed on the tweet:
This is Trump’s tweet:
A complete and full log out from White House Doctors yesterday. That means I can’t get it (immune), and may’t give it. Very good to know!!!

Twitter has to this point been the one social media platform to persistently flag, take away, and warn about Trump’s pandemic lies. There is not any proof but that individuals who had the coronavirus are proof against getting it once more.
Trump is so determined to promote himself as well being that he’s jeopardizing the general public well being by spreading false info throughout a pandemic, however that is nothing new for Donald Trump who began spreading false info with the launch of his first presidential marketing campaign.
Social media firms have a accountability to democracy and to the general public well being to flag Trump’s misinformation and probably harmful statements.
