Twitter removes Brazilian President Bolsonaro tweets


Microblogging site Twitter Inc on Sunday removes the two tweets (videos) of Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro in which he questioned quarantine measures aimed at containing the novel coronavirus.

Two tweets (videos) were removed and replaced with the notice “This tweet is no longer available because it violated the Twitter Rules,” explaining why the tweets were removed.

In one of the deleted videos, Bolsonaro tells a street vendor, “What I have been hearing from people is that they want to work.”

“What I have said from the beginning is that ‘we are going to be careful, the over-65s stay at home,’” he said.

In the two deleted videos on Sunday, the 65-year-old President defended the end of the confinement measures in effect in many of the states and the use of chloroquine to treat the disease, even though its effectiveness has still not been fully proven.

In the second deleted video, Bolsonaro appears in a butcher’s shop in Sobradinho, also located in the metropolitan region of Brasilia, to say that unemployment has terrified people.

A Twitter spokesperson said it to local media,

it had recently included among its criteria for excluding tweets, content that contradicted public health information from official sources and could put people at greater risk of transmitting COVID-19.


Twitter’s Vijaya Gadde & Matt Derella made a blog post regarding an update on continuity strategy during COVID-19.
