Over 100,000 “digital first responders” were recruited by the UN at the height of the pandemic to spread the official COVID narrative on social media.

The WEF is developing a system that would prevent posts from appearing if they don’t pass the censorship filter, a practice some have nicknamed “preemptive censorship.”
The WEF, which is notorious for blocking its critics on Twitter, would obviously never take advantage of such a system to hide from scrutiny.
