Twitter will ban you for spreading COVID-19 vaccine misinformation


As vaccines roll out across the world, Twitter wants to tackle related misinformation by introducing a new strike system. The company said repeat offenders – accounts with five strikes against them – will be permanently banned.

Last December, Twitter said it start deleting tweets with misinformation related to coronavirus vaccines; the company said today that it has deleted 8,400 such messages to date.

Starting today, the social network will begin tagging tweets with vaccine misinformation. They will also indicate organized content related to COVID-19 vaccines in the local context.
