Trump’s tweet gets flagged again

Washington, 12th October: Twitter has issued a warning label to a recent tweet by the US President Donald Trump.

According to CNN News, Twitter just added a warning label to a tweet from President Donald Trump that claimed, without evidence, he is immune to coronavirus after his physician cleared him to resume public activities.

“A total and complete sign off from White House Doctors yesterday. That means I can’t get it (immune), and can’t give it. Very nice to know!!!” Trump wrote on Twitter on Sunday.

He also claimed immunity in an interview with Fox News, where he said he believes he will be immune for “maybe a long time, maybe a short time, could be a lifetime.”

According to the Centers For Disease Control And Prevention, there is no evidence that people are immune to coronavirus if they have been infected once. The CDC specifically cautions people not to assume they are immune.

Twitter’s warning label says the tweet “violated the Twitter Rules about spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to Covid-19.”
“We placed a public interest notice on [President Trump’s] Tweet for violating our Covid-19 Misleading Information Policy by making misleading health claims about Covid-19,” a Twitter spokesperson said.
“As is standard with this public interest notice, engagements with the Tweet will be significantly limited.”
On the other hand, Trump posted the same message on his Facebook account, but the platform hasn’t added a warning label despite the fact that it violates its rules. The post has been up for four hours and has been shared more than 24,000 times on Facebook.
Trump’s Facebook post states, “A total and complete sign off from White House Doctors yesterday. That means I can’t get it (immune), and can’t give it. Very nice to know!!!”
On Tuesday, Facebook removed a post from the President’s account after he claimed the flu is more lethal than Covid-19.
Twitter has added this warning label to Trump’s tweets before. Last month, Twitter labelled a flag to Trump’s tweet on voting twice. And last week, it flagged his tweet that falsely claimed Covid-19 is less deadly than the seasonal flu.
