Twitter Removes Jair Bolsonaro’s Tweets About Chinese Virus

Twitter Removes Jair Bolsonaro’s Tweets About Chinese Virus, by Allum Bokhari.

Twitter took down two tweets from Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, citing its policy against misinformation related to the Chinese coronavirus, despite refusing to take down misinformation from Chinese officials about the virus last week. …

Twitter did not explain how Bolsonaro’s videos did not similarly fall under “direct interactions with fellow public figures, comments on political issues of the day,” or why its new coronavirus-related rules superseded those protections in Bolsonaro’s case, but not in the case of the Chinese officials.

I think we all know why.
