White House working with Facebook and Twitter to tackle anti-vaxxers

The White House has been reaching out to social media companies including Facebook, Twitter and Alphabet Inc’s Google about clamping down on Covid misinformation and getting their help to stop it from going viral, according to a senior administration official.

“Disinformation that causes vaccine hesitancy is going to be a huge obstacle to getting everyone vaccinated and there are no larger players in that than the social media platforms,” said the source — who has direct knowledge of the White House’s efforts — while speaking to Reuters.

“We are talking to them [...] so they understand the importance of misinformation and disinformation and how they can get rid of it quickly.”
