Twitter restricts Donald Trump jnr’s account over COVID-19 tweet

Twitter says it limited access to Donald Trump jnr’s account for 12 hours because a tweet he posted violated the social media site’s misinformation policy on COVID-19.

The eldest son of US President Donald Trump on Monday posted a video of doctors talking about the drug hydroxychloroquine. The video was taken down by the social media company for breaking its rules on COVID-19 misinformation.

The video was also taken down by Facebook and Alphabet-owned YouTube after racking up millions of views, for breaking their rules on COVID-19 misinformation.

President Trump also retweeted a post late on Monday containing a link to the video and accusing Dr Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, and Democrats of suppressing the use of the drug hydroxychloroquine to treat the novel coronavirus.
