Twitter is apparently tackling the scourge of users who note that vaccinated people can spread COVID19 to the unvaccinated

Twitter is committed to stomping out misinformation.

To that end, they’re … punishing people who tweet out facts?


More from Mediaite:

Twitter will begin imposing penalties on users who claim that vaccinated people can spread Covid-19, according to a change quietly added to the website’s terms of service.

“When tweets include misleading information about Covid-19, we may place a label on those tweets that includes corrective information about that claim,” the website notes in a section detailing its rules about Covid-19 misinformation. “We may apply labels to tweets that contain, for example… false or misleading claims that people who have received the vaccine can spread or shed the virus (or symptoms, or immunity) to unvaccinated people.”

Users can receive penalties up to a permanent ban.

What fresh hell is this?

As the Mediaite article notes, as it currently comes across, Twitter’s new addition to their TOS requires that users ignore the CDC.

Who’s really pushing the misinformation here?

We don’t have a lot of nice things to say about the CDC these days, but there’s actual concrete living proof that vaccinated individuals can still spread COVID19.


Does Twitter actually want to debate it?

That’s certainly a possibility.

More from Twitter:

When Tweets include misleading information about COVID-19, we may place a label on those Tweets that includes corrective information about that claim. In cases where we determine there is potential for harm associated with the misleading claim, we will disable the ability for others to Retweet, Quote Tweet, or engage in other ways to prevent the spread of the misleading information. These tweets will accrue 1 strike in accordance with our strike policy stated below.

In some cases we may also add labels to provide context in situations where authoritative (scientific or otherwise) opinion might change or is changing over time, in situations where local context is important, or when the potential for harm is less direct or imminent. We may also apply labels on Tweets linking to content from a third-party website that would otherwise violate our policies if the content were posted directly on Twitter. Tweets with labels that meet this criteria will receive a label that provides credible and authoritative information, but will not accrue a strike in accordance with our strike policy stated below.


Here are some of the examples of the kinds of tweets that Twitter says would merit a “label”:

At best, this language is vague and unclear.

And if Twitter doesn’t mean it in the way their phrasing has led so many people to interpret it, they definitely need to make some changes. Because right now, this looks irresponsible — not to mention anti-scientific — on their part.
