NJ State Sen. Declan O’Scanlon

Locked Account

NJ State Senator says he was locked out of his account and forced to delete tweet about not forcing Americans to get COVID-19 vaccines: New Jersey State Sen. Declan O’Scanlon (R-Monmouth) said he was temporarily locked out of his account and compelled by Twitter to delete one of his tweets about COVID-19 in order to return his account to full functionality on the platform. “Given that we have crushed Covid with combination of natural immunity and voluntary uptake there is no reason anyone should be compelled to take the vaccine[s]. Restrictions/mandates/vaccine passports all uncalled for,” read O'Scanlon's tweet. A Twitter spokesperson reportedly said his "tweet violated its 'misleading information policy' which bans 'false or misleading information about COVID-19 which may lead to harm.'"
