The social media platform last Friday flagged the story headlined, “Mom, 45, Who Got Job at John Hopkins Hospital Dies After Reaction to Work-Mandated Covid Vaccine,” claiming it spread “misleading and potentially harmful information related to Covid-19.”
“Under this policy we require the removal of content that may pose a risk to people’s health, including content that goes directly against guidance from authoritative sources of global and local public health information,” Twitter wrote in a statement.
The banned article covered the tragic death of Maryland healthcare worker Robin Spring Saunders, who had just accepted a job with John Hopkins Hospital but reportedly died shortly after receiving a Covid-19 vaccine required for employment.
In order to restore the account to fully-active status, the Infowars author was required to delete the offending post, though it’s unclear how the anecdotal story regarding a woman’s tragic post-vaccine death could “pose a risk to health.”
The story’s censorship occurred just days ahead of a White House announcement Thursday that it would begin recommending social media posts promoting so-called “vaccine misinformation” for deletion.
