With the outbreak of the global pandemic virus called coronavirus CoVid-19, you don’t need to go far on social media joking around with it and spreading fears. Knowing that Twitter will take extra steps to delete tweets that might put people at risk of coronavirus as it sweeps around the globe.

On Wednesday, Twitter updated its policy to discontinue tweets that could place people to a higher risk of transmitting COVID-19. The new policy bans any tweet encouraging Fake or ineffective treatments, prevention and diagnostics as well as tweets that might mislead users by disguising to be from health authorities.
