Current Twitter CEO Elon Musk declared Wednesday that Twitter will promote "reasoned" skepticism of scientific data.

"New Twitter policy is to follow the science, which necessarily includes reasoned questioning of the science," Musk wrote.

Many Twitter users rallied and suggested that the policy promoted actual pursuit of scientific truth. Evolutionary behavioral scientist Gad Saad appeared to joke about the dogmatic way scientific experts were treated amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
