Shocking: Facebook removes Donald Trump’s COVID post and Twitter hides it on its social platform.

President Trump was treated for three days in hospital after being found corona positive, after which he has now come to the White House. He wrote that America has “learned to live with the flu season”, “in the same way that we are learning to live with COVID, it is much less deadly in most of the population.” Trump had also posted the same message on Twitter, which has been hidden by Twitter.

A warning is written on his tweet that it can be misleading and potentially harmful information.

After reading this warning, the user will click on the tweet, only then he will see the real tweet.
At the same time, Facebook’s policy communications manager Andy Stone said, “We remove the wrong information about the seriousness of the COVID-19, and we have now removed this post.”
It is not yet known what the exact death rate of COVID-19 is, but according to Johns Hopkins University, it is believed that it can be 10 times or more than most flu strains.

The President has responded to this by another tweet, “repeal of section 230 !!!” He is referring here to the law which says that social networks are not responsible for the content posted by their users.

But this allows companies to “block content that they find offensive, harassing, or violent” for users. If this law is repealed, then social media companies can be sued for making any changes in the user content.
