Twitter has barred President Trump's official campaign account "Team Trump" from tweeting by locking his account until he deletes a tweet that the platform says contains "coronavirus misinformation."
The Washington Post erroneously reported that it was the president's own account that had been banned.
TPM's Ian Miles Cheong spotted the false reporting by WaPo.
The Post has since corrected their report to read: "Team Trump’s tweet of a video clip from a Fox News interview — in which President Trump said that children are 'almost immune' from COVID-19 — violates the site’s rules against misinformation, the company said. Twitter hid the post and said the account will not be able to tweet again until he deletes it, although it can appeal the decision."
This is a breaking news story and will be updated.
