Ever since it first started rolling out, 5G skeptics have attempted to link the next-gen cellular technology to all manner of health issues. Most recently, it’s become an easy scapegoat for the global COVID-19 pandemic, given the rapid rise of both.

Conspiracy theories have gained such a foothold that vigilantes have taken matters into their own hands by destroying cell towers in various European countries. In its latest bid to tamp down on the spread of false information pertaining to the novel coronavirus, Twitter today expanded its COVID-19 guidance to include the topic.

“We’re prioritizing the removal of COVID-19 content when it has a call to action that could potentially cause harm,” a spokesperson for the company told TechCrunch. “As we’ve said previously, we will not take enforcement action on every Tweet that contains incomplete or disputed information about COVID-19. Since introducing these new policies on March 18, we’ve removed more than 2,200 Tweets. As we’ve doubled down on tech, our automated systems have challenged more than 3.4 million accounts which were targeting discussions around COVID-19 with spammy or manipulative behaviors.”

The note seems to leave open the possibility of leaving up some share of 5G claims that don’t “potentially cause harm.” Still, the gray area is fairly wide, when considering activities like property destruction seemingly caused in the name of 5G-related conspiracy.

“We have broadened our guidance on unverified claims that incite people to engage in harmful activity,” the company wrote on social media, “could lead to the destruction or damage of critical 5G infrastructure, or could lead to widespread panic, social unrest or large-scale disorder.”

    presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand.

  5. Многим знакома ситуация, когда при выборе Андроид приставки мы стоим перед выбором: что лучше смарт тв или приставка

    По ссылке
    http://aromatov.wooden-rock.ru/forum/topic.php?forum=1&topic=3021 мы будем рассказывать и помогать вам купить Smart приставку на Android, также известную как ТВ-бокс. Среди большого выбора Android TV Box трудно выбрать нужный, поэтому в приведенной ниже нашей заметке мы собрали лучшие решения, основанные на опыте эксплуатации, которые вам подойдут.

    Android ТВ-бокс, также известная как Smart TV, представляет собой небольшой мини-ПК, который, как следует из названия, обычно работает под управлением ОС Андроид и может быть задействован для увеличения возможностей телевизора. Система в смарт-телевизорах, используемая сейчас, иногда раздражающе медленная, меню открываются медленно, фильмы загружаются медленно. И, что важно, приложений далеко не так много, как заявляют продавцы. Мы также можем существенно улучшить их, используя Смарт телевизор, поскольку мы получаем гораздо более быстрое оборудование от телевизионной системы, и в зависимости от модели мы можем выполнить огромный спектр приложений, и мы будем использовать телевизор только в качестве дисплея.
