Breaking: Twitter Freezes Trump Campaign For Misinfo

UPDATE: The Washington Post has amended the post seen below. It now says this:

Twitter said it will require President Trump’s campaign account to remove a post containing coronavirus misinformation, banning the account from tweeting until it does so.

Team Trump’s tweet of a video clip from a Fox News interview — in which President Trump said that children are “almost immune” from covid-19 — violates the site’s rules against misinformation, the company said.

Twitter hid the post and said the account will not be able to tweet again until it deletes it, although it can appeal the decision.
