Twitter put a warning on an article from the UK’s Daily Mail this week, describing the link as potentially being “unsafe.”
The article is written by the paper’s deputy health editor, Eve Simmons, and discusses how official government figures vastly overstated the COVID-19 death rate due to bad reporting.
“Warning: this link may be unsafe,” Twitter told users when they clicked the link to the article.
“The link you are trying to access has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially spammy or unsafe, in accordance with Twitter’s URL Policy,” it said.
However, at around 10.35AM EDT on Sunday (March 20), Twitter appeared to stop blocking links to the article.
