Twitter employees are actively involved in disinformation propaganda to attack Florida and Texas. This was revealed in a report made by journalist Logan Hall. The information came after it was reported that states governed by Republicans and that have lifted restrictions due to the pandemic have fewer cases than states such as New York, Michigan and Pennsylvania, which maintain restrictive measures due to the virus.
The states trended on Twitter. However, the company added information that casts doubt on the veracity of the report of cases. In the summary made by the platform, it alerts about a report made by Fox News in which it compares the states in terms of the situation of COVID-19 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
The issue that Twitter employees warn about
On Monday, Texas and Florida were reported to have fewer cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) than Democratic-led Michigan, Pennsylvania and New York, with tighter pandemic restrictions, according to data collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Republican governors were criticized when they began lifting pandemic restrictions. On March 2, Texas Governor Greg Abbott lifted the order on mandatory use of facemasks. He also lifted all operating restrictions on restaurants and bars. Abbott said he was taking the measures as the vaccination campaign progressed.
