Twitter bans Dr. Vladimir (Zev) Zelenko's Freedom Foundation account, claims it is evading a ban: Dr. Zev Zelenko, the creator of the Zelenko HCQ (hydroxychloroquine) protocol, was previously banned from Twitter on two different occasions, with the second incident reportedly being due to a "ban evasion" according to Twitter. Dr. Zelenko subsequently launched the "Z-Freedom Foundation," which is not yet taking donations, in order to help continue his mission after his imminent death from cancer, according to a video on the foundation's web site. The new foundation also created a Twitter account on June 15, 2022, gaining very little traction and only a few thousand followers in the following two weeks. On July 1, 2022, Dr. Zelenko's death was announced, as was the permanent suspension of the foundation's Twitter account, once again with Twitter reportedly claiming it was due to a "ban evasion" according to screenshots shared with CensorTrack. It is unclear what Twitter's exact rules are surrounding "ban evasion," as the foundation had never previously had a Twitter account, and Dr. Zelenko is now deceased.
