A tweet by entrepreneur Elon Musk suggesting children are "essentially immune" to coronavirus did not break Twitter's rules, the company has said.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media.
This week, Twitter pledged to remove misinformation and tweets denying scientific facts about the virus.
It even cited claims about child immunity as an example of misinformation that it would remove.
But even though children can catch and transmit the virus, it said it did not break its rules when read in context.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued special guidance about caring for children who fall sick after catching the virus.
But during a question-and-answer session with his Twitter followers on Thursday, Mr Musk, who co-founded PayPal before joining car-maker Tesla, tweeted: "Kids are essentially immune, but elderly with existing conditions are vulnerable."
