(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) Twitter censored the Florida Surgeon General’s updated guidance on COVID-19 mRNA shots, which advised males aged 18-39 against getting them, but the social media platform restored the tweet after conservative pushback.
“Our current misleading information policies cover: synthetic and manipulated media, COVID-19, and civic integrity,” Twitter stated after censoring the tweet. “If we determine a Tweet contains misleading or disputed information per our policies that could lead to harm, we may add a label to the content to provide context and additional information.”
At first, Twitter went further than adding context by removing the post, but then Twitter reinstated it on Oct. 9.
Today, we released an analysis on COVID-19 mRNA vaccines the public needs to be aware of. This analysis showed an increased risk of cardiac-related death among men 18-39. FL will not be silent on the truth.

Florida countered the mainstream narrative by launching the study to “evaluate the risks of all-cause and cardiac-related mortality following COVID-19 vaccination.” The study examined the state’s residents, aged 18 years and older, who died after receiving the shots.
“This analysis found that there is an 84% increase in the relative incidence of cardiac-related death among males 18-39 years old within 28 days following mRNA vaccination,” the Florida Health Department wrote in a press release.
Lapado determined that the injection’s risks outweigh its benefits, especially given “a high level of global immunity to COVID-19.”
The study found that non-mRNA COVID-19 shots did not carry the increased risk of cardiac arrest or death.
“Studying the safety and efficacy of any medications, including vaccines, is an important component of public health,” Dr. Joseph Ladapo.
“Far less attention has been paid to safety and the concerns of many individuals have been dismissed – these are important findings that should be communicated to Floridians.”
