Twitter just censored Trump’s FLU tweet!!!

This morning Trump tweeted about Flu season coming up, noting that we deal with sometimes high death tolls during Flu season without shutting the country down and we need to learn to do the same with COVID:

“Flu season is coming up! Many people every year, sometimes over 100,000, and despite the Vaccine, die from the Flu. Are we going to close down our Country? No, we have learned to live with it, just like we are learning to live with Covid, in most populations far less lethal!!!”

There is literally nothing wrong with this tweet whatsoever. The 100,000 fatality number for the flu that Trump uses as an example is legitimate and it is true that in some, if not most populations the coronavirus is less lethal than the flu.

But Twitter censored Trump’s tweet anyway, claiming that it was “spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19”:

That’s what you see if you are browsing Trump’s timeline. If you open the tweet this is what you see:

This is absolutely absurd. There is no justifiable reason to censor this tweet.

As I was writing this post, Trump just tweeted “REPEAL SECTION 230!!!”:
