The AP and Breaking911 had the exact same title on the FDA’s restriction of the J&J vaccine … guess which Twitter flagged as “misleading”

In case you missed it, the FDA yesterday placed strict limits on who can get Johnson & Johnson’s COVID vaccine.

More from the AP:

The FDA chief of vaccines, Dr. Peter Marks said the agency decided to limit the vaccine after taking another look at the data on the risks of life-threatening blood clots and concluding they are limited to the J&J vaccine.

“If there’s an alternative that appears to be equally effective in preventing severe COVID-19 outcomes, we’d rather see people opt for that,” Marks said. “But we were careful to say that, compared to no vaccine, this is still a better option.”

According to new FDA instructions, J&J’s vaccine could still be given to people who have had a severe allergic reaction to one of the other vaccines and cannot receive an additional dose. The J&J injection could also be an option for people who refuse to receive the mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna, and thus would otherwise remain unvaccinated, the agency said.

This is a big deal, so it’s understandable that an account will like it @ Breaking911 it would cover it as well. And they did.

But their coverage was a little different than that of the APs. See if you can spot it.

Here is the title of the AP:

And here is the title of Breaking911:

Do you already see the difference? No? Well, you’re clearly not as perceptive as Twitter, which has seen a huge difference:

Clearly the AP’s tweet was acceptable as it is, but Breaking911’s was not. Who knows what it is.

Almost. But they would never do such a thing, would they?

Some tweeters out there are actually defending Twitter’s selective “misleading” label by saying that Breaking911’s tweet lacked AP context. But obviously Twitter I couldn’t even buy it:

Little steps.
