Finally, Twitter admitted it was wrong to suspend journalist Alex Berenson after the two parties reportedly settled a lawsuit, Berenson shared Wednesday.

The social media giant permanently banned Berenson from the platform in August 2021 for contradicting official COVID-19 messaging in a tweet, despite it being factually accurate.

On Wednesday, Berenson announced a settlement with Twitter on his Substack page, “Unreported Truths.”

[L]ast August, Twitter banned me after I got five strikes under its Covid-19 misinformation policy. Which meant I’d supposedly made “claims of fact” that were “demonstrably false or misleading” and “likely to impact public safety or cause serious harm” (that’s the policy, that’s what it takes to get a strike, look it up).

Now we come to find those tweets “should not have led to my suspension”?

Here’s the tweet that got him “permanently suspended.”

Berenson was referring to the COVID-19 vaccines, which have proven increasingly unable to prevent infection from the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus. Also known as the SARS-CoV-2, the virus causes COVID-19.

Though the vaccines have been authorized and approved for the prevention of the virus, they’re actually recommended primarily for helping prevent severe disease among those who contract the illness.

Twitter had initially claimed that Berenson’s post was “misleading,” even though the company acknowledged that “studies indicate a reduction in vaccine effectiveness against the Omicron variant” of the virus.

Studies show that the Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson shots—the only three available in the United States—provide little protection against Omicron and that the protection quickly wanes.

Some studies indicate that the vaccinated are more likely to contract the virus after certain periods of time elapse following vaccination.

Here’s what The Post Millenial Reported:

Twitter has recently settled a lawsuit with Alex Berenson and reinstated his account.

After the reinstatement, Berenson posted some details about the suit to Twitter. Berenson said that the federal judge in the case, William Alsup, “offered two justifications” for allowing the “lawsuit to proceed on breach of contract grounds.”

These were emails sent to Berenson by a Twitter executive, who per Berenson’s account in the Wall Street Journal, repeatedly told him that “the company didn’t believe I was violating its rules.”

Then, on August 28, 2021, he was permanently banned for tweeting “It doesn’t stop infection. Or transmission.” The second reason was that Twitter had been “modifying its terms of service when it set up its five-strike Covid misinformation policy.”

Berenson further explained the judges’ decision, saying that “once the company voluntarily sets guidelines that it says it will follow in disciplining or banning users, IT MUST FOLLOW THOSE – possible even if its underlying terms of service say otherwise…”

Last month, America’s Frontline News reported that renowned physician and medical expert Dr. Andrew Bostom, MD, MS Wednesday was suspended by Twitter after posting a recent peer-reviewed study showing the COVID-19 vaccine impairs sperm count in men.
