Twitter Set To Block Conspiracy Tweets That Link 5G To COVID-19.

Social media giants, Twitter has stated that it will be taking down comments inciting “harmful activity,” specifically calls to destroy wireless equipment stemming from a conspiracy theory that linked 5G to the coronavirus.

The move follows social media calls that have resulted in attacks on 5G towers in some European countries.

In a blog post, Twitter said it was refining its policy to deal with the latest incidents. Stating that It will remove “unverified claims” that could lead to the destruction or damage of critical infrastructure, “widespread panic, social unrest, or large-scale disorder.”

These include tweets that falsely tell people food is running out or that 5G wireless causes coronavirus.
