A fabricated tweet attributed to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez advocates extending COVID-19 restrictions on businesses “until after the November Elections.” There is no evidence Ocasio-Cortez sent the bogus tweet, which was shared — and later deleted — by a Florida congressional candidate and a Fox News host.
ProPublica’s log of her deleted tweets also shows that she did not post/deleted any. such tweet. And a screen capture of her Twitter account that day on the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine doesn’t show the tweet, either. For those that don’t know how social media works…Just because you delete a tweet/post does not mean it is lost. You can still go back and see what someone has deleted. Companies are tracking and recording all this information as soon as it is posted it is on the record. You can delete it but it is not lost, NO MATTER who you are and anything you have posted/deleted can be pulled back-up.
