The move by Twitter comes with social networks struggling to deal with a wave of misinformation and unverified claims about the disease outbreak.

It would be interesting to see if it's nations getting their paid cyber warfare staff to push the misinformation, organizations or just random individuals.

I'm also interested to see if other social media do the same thing in efforts to counter the spread of misinformation.

Many coronavirus deniers have been allowed to post messages saying Covid19's just another cold/flu/hepatitis, directly contradicting what most medical scientists around the world were saying.

Who knows whether these posters are paid employees of a government, an organization, or were just individuals posting opinions.
