On Tuesday, Twitter CEO Elon Musk took to social media to voice his disdain for Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert. In a series of tweets, Musk accused Fauci of being “a fraud” and called out the doctor for his “miserable” track record on predicting the course of the pandemic. Twitter’s new policy, which will not penalize users for questioning scientific claims on the platform, seems to be a direct response to Musk’s criticisms. For conservatives who have long been suspicious of government officials like Fauci, this latest development is likely to be viewed as a victory.
