Twitter flagged obituary post as ‘misleading’

Twitter flagged a Seattle woman’s obituary post as “misleading” and added information on “why health officials consider COVID-19 vaccines safe for most people”, The Daily Mail has reported.

The obituary on Oregon Live states that Jessica Berg Wilson, an “exceptionally healthy and vibrant 37-year-old young mother with no underlying health conditions”, passed away “from COVID-19 Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT)”.

The tweet was “shadow banned” which meant that other users couldn’t reply or share it.

The Daily Mail reported that Twitter has since taken down the “misleading” label after other people slammed the site for “censoring” the obituary.

Jessica’s obituary didn’t state which vaccine she received.
