Twitter has removed the Iranian President's tweets in which he said the UK and the US vaccines can not be trusted. Iran President Ali Khamenei had suggested French and British vaccines could be used to infect Iranians.

Khamenei had tweeted in his Twitter account, "Importing vaccines made in the US or the UK is prohibited. They're completely untrustworthy. It's not unlikely they would want to contaminate other nations. Given our experience with France's HIV-tainted blood supplies, French vaccines aren't trustworthy either."

Iranian President is the second president to have his tweets removed in recent days after, but this time he was just announcing the government decision that was neither instigating violence nor misinformation. Iranian president's tweet seemed more of skepticism considering the past experiences of the middle eastern nation.

Critics have been criticizing the behavior of private platforms to control what can be spoken and by whom. Some people even say these things only happen in an apocalyptic world.

Any way restriction of opinion is a dangerous and imminent threat that is slowly taking over.
