Twitter removed a tweet from White House coronavirus adviser Scott Atlas on Sunday in which he said that masks don't work.
The tweet, captured in screenshots, was flagged for violating Twitter's policy against spreading misleading information and is no longer visible to users. It linked to an online post published by the American Institute for Economic Research critical of coronavirus lockdowns and restrictions such as wearing masks.
