Elon Musk Announces New Twitter Policy To Allow Scientific Debate

•, by Chase Smith

"New Twitter policy is to follow the science, which necessarily includes reasoned questioning of the science," Musk wrote.

No further details of the plan had been released, but The Epoch Times reached out to Twitter for comment.

In a follow-up tweet below his original policy announcement, Musk said "Anyone who says that questioning them is questioning science itself cannot be regarded as a scientist."

Musk has released a trove of information since taking over the company regarding Twitter's suppression of certain information related to COVID-19.

Musk said Twitter employees had a private group on Slack that was a "fan club" of White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci, The Epoch Times reported. The employees "had an internal Slack channel unironically called 'Fauci Fan Club,'" Musk wrote.

Musk's post noted that the Fauci Fan Club was set up despite outstanding "glaring issues" regarding Fauci, including the question of whether the White House adviser was untruthful when he denied that U.S. federal money was used to fund risky "gain-of-function" research at a Chinese lab at the center of speculation about the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Alleged Twitter Suppression of Scientific Debate

Musk revealed in the Twitter Files—a collection of internal emails and communications made public by Musk—the company suppressed early treatment options for COVID-19, and vaccine safety concerns, Dr. Peter McCullough said in an interview on Newsmakers by NTD and The Epoch Times on Dec. 14.
