Update (11:00AM ET): Twitter appears to have pulled a PayPal, and promptly re-instated the post in question after blowback on the social media site about the censoring. As of about noon on the East Coast Sunday, the Tweet was once again showing up under Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo’s feed.
Earlier in the day we reported that Twitter censored Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo’s tweet about a new Covid vaccine study that “the public needs to be aware of.” He said, “this analysis showed an increased risk of cardiac-related death among men 18-39. FL will not be silent on the truth.”
It hasn’t even been a full 24 hours since Ladapo tweeted it out. And now, the tweet is removed and replaced with a message from Twitter that reads: “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules.” A backlink was also provided that reads: “Learn more.”
There was no explanation of why the tweet was removed, though the backlink said the content “may contain disputed or misleading information.”
People were furious on Twitter for the big tech’s censorship of a government official.
Twitter censored @FLSurgeonGen for sharing FL Dept of Health study, part of which @LisaMarieBoothe highlighted below. So, Twitter hall monitors know more than a Harvard MD/PhD?— Christina Pushaw 🐊 🇺🇸 (@ChristinaPushaw) October 9, 2022
Also, Dr. Ladapo is a STATE HEALTH OFFICIAL – an “authoritative source” by Twitter’s own definition. https://t.co/3pDBP4ZmnB
FLSurgeonGen Joseph Ladapo’s tweet announcing how a study into the covid mRNA vaccine found an 84% increase in cardiac-related deaths for men ages 18-39 was deleted as misinformation. Seems the truth can't be handled.— RobertLeeBeers (@BeersLee) October 9, 2022
Unbelievable: Twitter has censored Florida surgeon general Joseph Ladapo and nuked his tweet recommending against the C-19 mRNA vaccines for males ages 18-39 years old.— Yaffa Shir-Raz (@YaffaRaz) October 9, 2022
You can delete tweets, you can burn books, but you will never be able to eliminate the truth! https://t.co/lDKALBIyFt pic.twitter.com/V4zdqOGIWw
That is a very good point.
Would you consider Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo more educated and trustworthy than some remote worker, who may have a college degree, but just flags social media posts for a living? pic.twitter.com/qUjZ2aBN5u— Nashville Angela (@angelanashtn) October 9, 2022
