Twitter tag Trump tweet
It is not the first time that one of Trump’s tweets has been flagged for posting inaccurate information about voting and electing them, just remember May 26, when Twitter tagged two tweets from his account for making false statements about voting by mail. , the first time the platform verified Trump’s tweets.
The tweets in question falsely claimed that the mail-in ballots would be anything but substantially fraudulent and would result in a rigged election. Twitter labeled the tweets as “potentially misleading” and added that fact-checkers say there is no evidence that the ballots sent by mail are linked to voter fraud.
This is how the casual comments that Trump decides to post on his social networks are treated, this can be a way in which Twitter discourages the misuse of its platform.
