(CNN) - Be extra cautious while looking for health information on Twitter.
The company announced that it has dropped its COVID-19 misinformation policy.
Shortly after the virus was spreading across the U.S. in 2020, Twitter put into effect a set of rules that focused on combatting “harmful misinformation” about coronavirus-related issues.
Over the past 2 1/2 years, Twitter says thousands of accounts were suspended for breaking those parameters.
This change in policy was low key. The announcement was made in a note on Twitter’s website.
