Twitter censorship is about to get more intense in the coming days.
The Big Tech giant plans to ban users that repeatedly claim vaccinated individuals can contract and spread COVID-19.
So, let’s get this straight.
Twitter thinks they have the authority to censor the CDC on this obvious fact the agency admitted months ago.

While the CDC isn’t a bastion of honesty itself, it’s hilarious that Twitter can dictate public health discourse above the agency responsible for the health and safety of Americans.
Here’s a reminder of CDC Director Rochelle Walensky’s admission that the experimental COVID-19 injections do NOT stop transmission of the virus:
“Our vaccines are working exceptionally well,” CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky tells @wolfblitzer. “They continue to work well for Delta, with regard to severe illness and death – they prevent it. But what they can't do anymore is prevent transmission." pic.twitter.com/s83YyBQqeh

Rochelle Walensky can make that statement.
But you and I cannot make that statement.
Stating this fact will soon get us banned from the Twitterverse.
That’s authoritarianism in action my friend.
Twitter users could now be sanctioned for sharing or discussing the CDC’s admission that “vaccinated people can still become infected and have the potential to spread the virus to others.”

As Reclaim The Net noted:
One of the most notable changes to this “COVID-19 misleading information policy” we noticed is related to claims about whether vaccinated people can spread the coronavirus. The policy now states that Twitter will label tweets with “corrective information” and give users a strike if they:
- Claim that “the vaccines will cause you to be sick, spread the virus, or would be more harmful than getting COVID-19”
- Post what Twitter describes as “false or misleading claims that people who have received the vaccine can spread or shed the virus (or symptoms, or immunity) to unvaccinated people”
This means Twitter users could now be sanctioned for sharing or discussing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) admission that “vaccinated people can still become infected and have the potential to spread the virus to others.”
Another Orwellian change to Twitter’s “COVID-19 misleading information policy” is flagging you for citing research and statistics if they decide you misrepresented the findings.
If the studies you share wade from the mainstream narrative, expect a strike on your account.
Red Wave explained:
Another change is that Twitter will start giving a strike to and labeling the tweets of users that use research and statistical findings to “make claims contrary to health authorities,” if it decides that their claims “misrepresent research or statistical findings pertaining to the severity of the disease, prevalence of the virus, or effectiveness of widely accepted preventative measures, treatments, or vaccines.”
Previously, Twitter would sanction what it deemed to be “false or misleading” information about research findings but there was no provision about contradicting health authorities.
In addition to this, Twitter will give users two strikes and remove their tweets if they claim that “vaccines approved by health agencies (such as Pfizer’s Comirnaty vaccine in the United States) did not actually receive full approval/authorization, and therefore that the vaccines are untested, ‘experimental’ or somehow unsafe.” This appears to be a reference to criticism of a footnote in the Federal Drug Administration (FDA’s) “full authorization” documents for the Pfizer-BioNTech (Comirnaty) vaccine which revealed that the FDA had extended the emergency-use authorization for the same vaccine.
Twitter users should prepare for serious 1984-style thought police once this “misleading information” policy goes into effect.
