After Lawsuit, Alex Berenson Gets Twitter Account Back

Reporter had been permanently suspended last year for his tweets about COVID vaccines

The outspoken critic of the prevailing response to the COVID-19 had his Twitter account reinstated Wednesday after nearly a year of being barred from the platform.

His first tweet back on the platform today was a duplicate of what had caused his suspension last year.

“It doesn’t stop infection. Or transmission. Don’t think of it as a vaccine. Think of it – at best – as a therapeutic with a limited window of efficacy and terrible side effect profile that must be dosed IN ADVANCE OF ILLNESS.”

Berenson filed a federal lawsuit in December 2021 challenging the ban.

On his Substack, the bestselling author revealed a part of his lawsuit settlement with Twitter.

“The parties have come to a mutually acceptable resolution. I have been reinstated. Twitter has acknowledged that my tweets should have not led to my suspension at that time.”

Tesla CEO Elon Musk, the world’s richest man, asked Berenson via a tweet to explain what the writer meant about the “…pressures that the government may have placed on Twitter…”

Freelance journalist Glen Greenwald chimed in in the reply thread.
