Was Twitter Followers Purchased to Silence Covid Scientist Rebekah Jones?

Twitter Suspends Whistleblower, DeSantis Critic Rebekah Jones

Patch 17 hrs ago Tiffany Razzano FLORIDA – Rebekah Jones, whistleblower, outspoken Gov. Ron DeSantis critic and data scientist who built the state’s now defunct COVID-19 dashboard, was suspended from Twitter on Monday. Jones has been prolific on the social media platform throughout the pandemic, especially after being fired from her job with the Florida Department of Health in early May 2020.

Per the above article; “Twitter Suspends Whistleblower, DeSantis Critic Rebekah Jones“.

 

“On Monday, her Twitter account was wiped clean of all content and has the statement “account suspended” posted to it. It also states that “Twitter suspends accounts which violate the Twitter Rules,” though it didn’t specify which rule she broke.

Jones said she was suspended for “platform manipulation and spam,” the Miami Herald reported. She filed an appeal with Twitter and told the Herald her suspension “was clearly an auto-lock feature against spamming.”

DeSantis’ spokesperson, Christina Pushaw, alleges Jones was suspended for buying Twitter followers.

“She was suspended because she broke a clear rule against buying followers (platform manipulation) and — all evidence points to this — hijacking the accounts of unsuspecting users to make them follow her,” Pushaw tweeted from her personal account”.

The statement about “buying followers” raises immediate suspicions of retaliation and silencing Jones for speaking out against Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

 

Since December 2020, Jones has been the target of “Nazi Gestapo”  harassment. Police body camera video was released of the raid at the home of Florida scientist Rebekah Jones.

Data scientist and Covid-19 whistleblower Rebekah Jones joins Ali Velshi to discuss why the raid on her home by armed Florida state police officers was intended to “scare” other state employees from raising concerns about the government’s handling of the coronavirus. Aired on 12/16/2020.

 

Trump-loving Florida governor Ron DeSantis continues to come out regarding his actions in covering up Florida’s COVID data before the Presidential election. He did this to help Trump and state Republicans win, because they had no chance of actually winning on their merits. The state of Florida is lost, and the fact that Trump won by such a large margin is absolute proof of that. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

(Hummm, wonder if this is why DeSantis had Jone home raided?)

 

Florida police raided the home of a former state coronavirus data scientist on Monday, escalating a feud between the state government and a data expert who has accused officials of trying to cover up the extent of the pandemic.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement executed a search warrant Monday morning at the home of data scientist Rebekah Jones, who was fired by the state Department of Health in May. The agency is investigating whether Jones accessed a state government messaging system without authorization to urge employees to speak out about coronavirus deaths, according to an affidavit by an agent working on the case.

Jones told CNN that she hadn’t improperly accessed any state messaging system and that she lost access to her government computer accounts after she was removed from her position.

About 10 officers with guns drawn showed up to her Tallahassee home around 8:30 a.m., Jones said. A video taken from a camera in her house, which she posted on social media, showed an officer pointing a gun up a stairwell as Jones told him her two children were upstairs. Jones said that the officer was pointing his gun at her 2-year-old daughter, 11-year-old son and her husband, who she said were in the stairwell, although the video doesn’t make that clear.
