Does this mean snot-nosed censors at YouTube will come to my office and kiss my … and admit I was right?https://t.co/0BZ2HZHiZW

The tweet, which questioned “Does this mean snot-nosed censors at YouTube will come to my office and kiss my … and admit I was right?” shared Apoorva Mandavilli’s article for The New York Times, “The C.D.C. concedes that cloth masks do not protect against the virus as effectively as other masks.”
From Mandavilli’s article:
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday clarified its stance on various kinds of masks, acknowledging that the cloth masks frequently worn by Americans do not offer as much protection as surgical masks or respirators.
While this disparity is widely known to the general public, the update marks the first time the C.D.C. has explicitly addressed the differences. The agency’s website also no longer refers to a shortage of respirators.
