Shortly thereafter Rubin posted a screenshot of a notice that he purportedly received from Twitter admitting it had "made an error" in restricting his account and had restored it. "They want a federal vaccine mandate for vaccines which are clearly not working as promised just weeks ago. People are getting and transmitting Covid despite vax. Plus now they're prepping us for booster shots," Rubin's still-deleted tweet said. "A sane society would take a pause. We do not live in a sane society." In its initial notice to Rubin, Twitter indicated that his tweet violated its "policy on spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19."
