Twitter Stops Policing Covid Misinformation

Twitter is no longer enforcing its Covid-19 misleading information policy after the website appeared to outline the latest update. NBC News’ Gadi Schwartz is joined by Wall Street Journal tech reporter Tim Higgins to look at the new changes that seem to be a part of Elon Musk’s greater push for what he calls “free speech” on the platform.

At the end of 2022, Donald Trump was reeling politically. Now, his position inside the …


  1. People and advertisers need to stop using the twitter. Dump the twit.

  2. Wasn’t misinformation.
    Doctors are speaking up on Utube.

  3. The only Covid misinformation has been what Biden, Wolinski, Fauci, Pfizer, the CDC, and your Chinese masters have been spreading. No amnesty for any of you!

  4. Elon Musk is not playing around from YE being deleted to the Suppression of the Hunter Laptop labeling it as "hacked material" story. The previous leadership were responsible for thousands of first amendment violations.

  5. What ever happened to people doing some research on their own and deciding for themselves what is BS and what isn't?

  6. NBC..short for Nothing But Crap

  7. People that want censorship now will regret it later when it starts working against them….but then it will be too late…they don't give back relinquished freedoms.

  8. "Twitter is no longer enforcing its Covid-19 misleading information policy" so let's otherwise "Convince It Forward"

  9. Not true! FUD! Government control of Twitter info is not necessarily a good thing right? Twitter is running better than ever! Never bet against Elon!

  10. It's refreshing to know that the truth will no longer be supressed. .

    The only misinformation is that of the CDC

  11. Elons free speech=hate speech.

  12. Everything that was not censored was exactly that ‘misinformation’. Vaccinated now surpassed un vax deaths which was peanuts anyway

  13. Is #TelsaMan truly the #ChiefTwit he portrays himself as? He has so many FCC rulings he has to deal with right now and he thinks he can just babble his way through. Big surprise coming for him when he receives the massive fines and is ordered to provide and pay for proper oversight of his company.

  14. If you haven't figured out by now who's actually providing the misinformation, you are a simpleton.

  15. I’d prefer to make my own choices than just believe whatever the state run media tells me to believe thanks ✌️

  16. It's cause they know what people we're saying was true. They can't hide the truth anymore eventually it will come out.

  17. It is real simple. When Twitter was Censoring it helped Democrats. Now that everyone can speak its destroying Democrats. And lets define misimforation. Before the election Hunters laptop was misinformation now its not. Democrats want to control the narrative well guess what this is the USA not China……well not yet.

  18. "Twitter … Covid Misinformation" so let's otherwise "Convince It Forward"

  19. I thought we already knew there's no such thing as c-word misinformation. We really don't know who to trust so this is dumb

  20. It’s not misinformation. That was Fauci, remember?

  21. Maybe sensible EU lawmakers can actually speak some sense into him

  22. Yea, because the overwhelming amount of “misinformation” over the last 24 months has been factually verified as the bulletproof truth

  23. Gee… I wonder what *"MiSiNfOrMaTiOn" these shills are referring to?
    1. Virus was created at Wuhan Lab… in China?
    2. China Lab was funded by NIH?
    3. Vaccines were ineffective?
    4. Lockdowns were ineffective?
    5. Masks were ineffective?
    6. Politicians made lots of money?
    7. Myocarditis is a side effect?
    8. No long-term studies were conducted?

  24. I love twitter. Big pharm is no longer in control

  25. I'm sure if tesla drivers or SpaceX misinformation (or fact) is posted they would be deleted in the name of free (Musk deemed) information. Musk and apple agreement = money, stock.

  26. "A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people."
    John F. Kennedy
    February 26, 1962

  27. Hate speech, No! Free speech, YES!

  28. You mean like the lab leak theory (probably true), myocarditis and vaccine side effects (all true)? What a stupid non-story.

  29. Hey Elon changed Twitter's name to wicked home of the wicked home of the brave wicked

  30. Great. I’m so glad that Twitter is in such good hands! NOT ! I killed my TWITTER account today. Good luck!

  31. Apply the following diet plan strictly for eighteen to twenty days during covid 19 infection and you have no fear of any type of pneumonia and inflammation. A human body does take 11 to 15 days to produce antibodies against any virus and it is a natural way to avoid the over inflammation. When antibiotics stopped working, Having taken help of Ayurveda(Ayurveda says that our food is responsible for our body's over inflammation) I have strictly followed this unique way of controlling inflammation and it's been three years, I won't face neither pneumonia nor inflammation. I have a very sensitive body, so I have sorted out these foods and, it took me more than 20 years .
    Non – inflammatory food list
    1. All the meaty products [everything, like eggs, pork, beef, mutton, chicken, fish etc.(eat them grilled or boiled or you can use pure butter clarified to cook them )] .
    2. Wheat and all the products that are made from pure wheat,( not bread, biscuits or cookies because they contain vegetables oil).
    3. Masoor dal.
    4. All the Dairy products (they must be made from pure animal milk like butter clarified, curd, cheese, fresh milk ).
    5. Turmeric powder, red chili powder , white sugar, sea salt, butter clarified.
    6. Because a human body needs vitamin c, so to fulfil this need you should eat Lemon, apricot, green or red chillis, these things are non inflammatory too.
    Note- many people think and they have observed that the curd and lemon are inflammatory things but I make you sure they aren't, because with the suggested diet plan , curd and lemon will never be inflammatory. (curd and lemon are not inflammatory things but when you eat something inflammatory, they act like catalyst.)
    The patient has to apply this diet plan very very strictly because consumption of a single fruit,dry fruit, vegetable or vegetable oil, onion, garlic, ginger, green beans, green leaves and all non suggested cereals , lentils and a little thing except the suggested diet may affect the whole result so apply this thing strictly for eighteen to twenty days and see the result by yourself.
    Note- feed your infants with mother milk or pure animal milk with mixed apricot powder ( Because animals milk does not contain vitamin c) ,( formula milk acts like a poison during the covid 19 infection because it contains vegetables oil.
    (if the patient follows this diet plan strictly his body acts over covid 19 like an ordinary body does, he may get affected but never faces the worst.)
    (covid 19 is fetal for those patients whose body act overwhelmingly on covid 19 because if someone's body doesn't act overwhelmingly, it's nothing but a different sort of comman cold for him , so this is the diet plan if you follow this diet plan your body never act overwhelmingly on covid 19 and you are safe.) ©} ק|<<™>¦¶§|<®©} × ÷{¢¥] ;`[€¥] ;÷{¢©} ק|<®

  32. Policing is an interesting choice of words since it is presented as a good thing with regard to speech and, eventually, thought. the mask is slipping because they are winning.

  33. YT stopped it also, because Fauci is a liar!

  34. Twitter will be the new Onion.
    Also, it'll be "free speech" until you hurt Elon's feelings. Then suddenly the algorithm will bury your tweets without you knowing it. Just sayin.

  35. Why can't they just admit that Twitter was their biggest censorship tool they had before Elon bought it. Stay mad you psychopaths 🤣

  36. California should go to a full lock down again

  37. Conspiracy facts. The good thing about being a conspiracy theorist is not having to worry about myocarditis.

  38. I am unvaccinated, untested and uncut. Pure blood Chads unite. 😊
