Twitter will no longer suppress Covid-related tweets as Musk continues his “general amnesty” across the platform. Users violating Twitter’s former Covid policies were suspended after two or three strikes, unable to operate their account for twelve hours. After four Covid violations, users were suspended for a week, a permanent ban in place after five violations.
According to statistics published by Twitter itself, between January 2020 and September 2022, the platform’s moderators challenged over 11.72 million accounts and suspended more than 11,000 for violating the rule. They also scrubbed nearly 100,000 pieces of content worldwide under the policy.
