Twitter censors Grabien Media founder Tom Elliott again, this time for factual tweets about COVID-19 vaccines: Grabien Media founder Tom Elliott took to Twitter to respond to the White House Press Secretary's statement that it is continuing to encourage businesses to force their employees to get a COVID-19 vaccine, despite the courts having issued stays against the OSHA regulation that attempted to enforce a mandate on all businesses with over 100 employees. In a quote tweet of a tweet with video of that statement, Elliott wrote: "Realities: COVID 'vaccines' don't inoculate you against the virus; they don't stop you from spreading it; they can help mitigate worse outcomes; they can also induce adverse events. There's no reason the federal gov't should determine what is ultimately a private medical decision." According to a purported screenshot shared by Mollie Hemingway, senior editor at The Federalist and Fox News contributor, Elliott was forced to delete the tweet. The screenshot did not indicate what rule Twitter claimed the tweet violated, but the platform has rules against what it deems to be "misinformation" against COVID-19 and the vaccines, though it is unclear what could be construed as false or misleading in Elliott's tweet. It is also unclear from the screenshot how long Elliott's account restriction will last after he deletes the tweet. The screenshot did indicate that he had appealed the action, and appeals with Twitter often take longer to resolve than the account restriction.
