Twitter announced that, starting next week, it will leave in a “memory hole” any messages that “call for a deliberate conspiracy” or “promote harmful, false or misleading narratives” about vaccines.

“Using a mix of technology and human oversight, we will begin implementing this updated policy on December 21st and expand our operations over the coming weeks,” the company said.

Twitter added that it will track vaccination reports "around the world in close collaboration with local, national and global public health authorities."

The tech company will also remove any messages that say vaccines are "used to intentionally harm," "control the population," or "not needed."

The statement also notes that messages will be deleted if they contain "false claims about the adverse effects or consequences of vaccination, which have been widely debunked."

What exactly means "debunked" was not specified. This presumably means any such vaccine claims that Twitter disagrees with.

The New York Times and others (Media - S.D.) reported on Wednesday (12/16/2020 - S.D.) that medical workers in Alaska were hospitalized with a serious allergic reaction following Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccination.

This development follows reports from Britain last week, in which some healthcare professionals reported serious allergic reactions to the vaccine. This prompted the British medical regulator to warn allergy sufferers not to get the vaccine.

There is ample documented evidence that some vaccines can cause harm and side effects, and that - compared to previous vaccines - the coronavirus vaccine is relatively untested. So, six people even DIED during the race to develop this vaccine.

The US regulatory agency, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), also said that some people who received the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine during the trial then developed Bell's palsy, a form of facial nerve palsy. …

The US and British governments have implemented special technology to monitor vaccine side effects because they know there will be a lot of such cases.

However, Twitter appears to be issuing a ruling that any suggestion that a shot of the vaccine could cause harm will be heavily censored.

Twitter states that in cases where it fails to prove that a message has been “debunked” and therefore completely removed, then to tweets that “spread unsubstantiated rumors, contested statements, or incomplete or torn from vaccine information context, intends to attach warning labels.

Twitter said last month it would send warnings to anyone who likes a post that the company believes will contain "misleading information."
