The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) posted a video to Twitter about stopping the spread of misinformation.
Strangely, the FDA used “the internet is going down later this week” as an example.
“Are you prepared? The internet is going down later this week. It’s going to be crazy. Find out more below,” the video said.
The video added panicked screams in the background.
“The real truth the government refuses to tell you. Previous account banned for sharing the truth,” the video used in another example.
“Wait a minute. This is misinformation,” the video added.
“You may be spreading misinformation unintentionally. Confirm the credibility of a source before contributing to the conversation. To see how FDA is addressing misinformation, check out our Rumor Control webpage,”
