Twitter issued a 7-day suspension to an Infowars editor following a story he posted regarding a medical worker who died after receiving a Covid vaccine.
The social media platform last Friday flagged the story headlined, “Mom, 45, Who Got Job at John Hopkins Hospital Dies After Reaction to Work-Mandated Covid Vaccine,” claiming it spread “misleading and potentially harmful information related to Covid-19.”
“Under this policy we require the removal of content that may pose a risk to people’s health, including content that goes directly against guidance from authoritative sources of global and local public health information,” Twitter wrote in a statement.
The banned article covered the tragic death of Maryland healthcare worker Robin Spring Saunders, who had just accepted a job with John Hopkins Hospital but reportedly died shortly after receiving a Covid-19 vaccine required for employment.
In order to restore the account to fully-active status, the Infowars author was required to delete the offending post, though it’s unclear how the anecdotal story regarding a woman’s tragic post-vaccine death could “pose a risk to health.”
The story’s censorship occurred just days ahead of a White House announcement Thursday that it would begin recommending social media posts promoting so-called “vaccine misinformation” for deletion.

A Maryland healthcare worker who had just accepted a job with the prestigious John Hopkins Hospital reportedly died after receiving a Covid-19 vaccine required for employment.
Appearing skeptical, 45-year-old mom Robin Spring Saunders wrote on social media that she received her first jab on June 21 and that it was mandated by her place of work.
“I never thought I’d get a Covid shot but I got my first one today,” a post from Saunders stated. “Unfortunately my job requires it.”
In a Facebook update, Robin’s mom asked for prayers for her daughter after she suffered a reaction to the vaccine and was in the hospital ICU.
“John Hopkins told her she had to have the shot to start her new job,” her mom wrote.
Robin’s cousin Crystal wrote on Facebook that Robin had had her “2nd covid shot,” which would have spaced the two doses out by mere days, and that she was “in the ICU with brain swelling and heart issues.”
“She is currently on a ventilator,” Crystal wrote. “She was also told she had to have this shot in order to start her new job.”
Other family members also desperately asked for prayers, and noted that she may have had her “2nd covid shot.”
Posts did not note whether Robin received either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
According to a post later that day from Saunders’ daughter, however, her condition took a turn for the worst and she died in the ICU.
An obituary at the Connelly Funeral Home of Essex in Baltimore shows a memorial for Robin.
At least one commenter on Facebook advised the family to seek legal help, as it remains to be seen if the hospital will be held liable.
