Twitter Slaps Warning Label on Trump Post Charging Democrats With Trying to ‘Steal’ Election
Just minutes after President Trump alleged in a Twitter post that Democrats were trying to “steal” the election, the social network hid the tweet behind a message warning that his tweet was “disputed” and “might be misleading.”
“We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the Election,” Trump tweeted at 12:49 a.m. ET. “We will never let them do it. Votes cannot be cast after the Polls are closed!”
Twitter in less than 10 minutes placed a warning over the president’s post that reads, “Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about an election or other civic process.”
In a separate post, Twitter Safety team said, “We placed a warning on a Tweet from @realDonaldTrump for making a potentially misleading claim about an election. This action is in line with our Civic Integrity Policy.”
Contrary to Trump’s claim, there’s no evidence that Democrats are trying to illegally have votes counted in the 2020 election.
More to come.
