Twitter suspends Trump’s account

Twitter has suspended Donald Trump Jr.’s account for retweeting a viral video about hydroxychloroquine.

Twitter said the video was a ‘potentially harmful information’.

Trump Jr had retweeted a viral video of Nigeria-trained doctor, Stella Immanuel, making some claims about hydroxychloroquine.

She had claimed that she successfully treated more than 350 COVID-19 patients in the United States of America using hydroxychloroquine, zinc and Zithromax.

Immanuel stated this while addressing the media, after America’s Frontline Doctors Summit in front of the US Supreme Court in Washington DC on Monday, July 27.

Responding to a tweet by a republican @surabees, Twitter said the tweet violated its rules.

Surabees had said “BREAKING: @Twitter & @jack have suspended @DonaldJTrumpJr for posting a viral video of medical doctors talking about Hydroxychloroquine.

“Big Tech is the biggest threat to free expression in America today & they’re continuing to engage in open election interference.”

Twitter in response said, “This account has not been permanently suspended. Per the screenshot, the Tweet requires deletion because it violates our rules (sharing misinformation on COVID-19), and the account will have limited functionality for 12 hours.‘‘We have determined that this account violated the Twitter Rules. Specifically, for: 1. Violating the policy on spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19,’’ it added.
