(Dec. 11, 2022) — As of approximately midnight Saturday, the Twitter account of mRNA technology pioneer Dr. Robert W. Malone, MD which was shuttered for nearly a year since his appearance on the Joe Rogan podcast, was reinstated.
“Thanks @ElonMusk, I’M BACK,” Malone tweeted. “Please retweet & Follow!!”
Since early 2021, Malone has questioned public health agencies’ heavy promotion of the mRNA “vaccines” for COVID-19 to the exclusion of early treatment and other options and described the technology he helped to develop as “gene therapy” rather than vaccines.
Recent document releases from Musk reveal high-level former Twitter personnel discussing various rationales for silencing accounts expressing viewpoints they deemed objectionable in apparent coordination with federal-government agency personnel.
Out of a total of 7,500 employees at the time of the acquisition, as of early November Musk laid off or fired approximately 50%. As he continues to make changes to the platform, he has received criticism from both the political left and right, with some praising the changes and others, such as performer Elton John, deciding not to “use Twitter.”
Silicon Valley entrepreneur and vaccine-safety researcher Steve Kirsch remains suspended from the platform, he reported Sunday on his Substack, while focusing on a tweet from Musk appearing in his shuttered account which reads, “My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci.”
Musk’s remark came approximately five hours after the release by independent journalist Michael Shellenberger of the fourth “Twitter Files” tranche providing greater insight into the reasoning Twitter managers used to suspend the account of then-President Donald Trump after the January 6, 2021 incursion at the U.S. Capitol.
“I’m still permanently banned on Twitter, but look what popped up when I logged into Twitter today: a gift from Elon Musk,” Kirsch wrote. “I’ve been saying the same thing since May 25, 2021.”
In June 2021, Kirsch and Malone appeared with host Bret Weinstein on his “Dark Horse” podcast, which was censored by YouTube and other platforms for its critique of the rapid rollout of the COVID-19 “vaccines.”
As this article was prepared, Twitter trends showed “Fauci” in third place:
Refreshing the screen at 1:15 p.m. EST, the hashtag “#arrestfauci” jumped into the top spot momentarily, though quickly replaced by “Pfizer,” with “Fauci” in second place.
The trend “Killer Kyle,” which may have referred to Kyle Rittenhouse, was defamatory in that Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges over an incident in Illinois in November of last year.
Over the next several minutes, the trends changed rapidly, resulting in “Fauci” reaching first place at 1:19 p.m. EST:
In the early hours Sunday, Musk tweeted a parody image of Fauci and Joe Biden:
Approximately two hours earlier, he suggested the “bots” would face a “surprise” on Sunday.
As of 1:47 p.m., “DiedSuddendly” [sic] was trending in fourth place.
Update/Correction, 7:45 p.m.: It appears The Post & Email may have erred when it reported Malone’s Twitter account was reinstated and that instead, an imposter opened an account impersonating him, which is against the new rules Musk has imposed.
As of 7:44 p.m., the “new” account reportedly has 52,000 followers. The Post & Email will update this development as necessary.
As reported by researcher/analyst Igor Chudov, in response to a Twitter user’s question on Saturday about “the info on the suspension of the many doctors and scientists,” Musk tweeted, “Oh it is coming bigtime …” [sic]
Update, 12:40 p.m., December 13, 2022: The initial account claiming to be Malone was an impersonator; Malone has been reinstated as of this update with previous followers intact.
Likewise, Dr. Peter A. McCullough’s account has been restored:
