Twitter’s policy on misinformation related to Covid-19 is no more, as the company quietly updated a nearly two-year-old blog post with a terse, one-sentence statement and no explanation for the move.

Twitter could not be reached for comment, as the company apparently eliminated its media relations department as part of its mass layoffs earlier this month.
