Another useless action by Twitter:
Twitter added a label directing users to information about “safe and secure” mail-in voting methods to a tweet posted by President Trump Thursday morning attacking vote-by-mail.
The social media platform said it added the label to the tweet for “making a potentially misleading statement regarding the process of mail-in voting.”
Twitter’s clickable-label directs users to “learn how voting by mail is safe and secure.” The link leads to a round-up of tweets about safe mail-in voting methods. Shortly after Trump’s tweet on mail-in voting, he attacked the social media platform over its “trending” topics.
We’ve added a label to this Tweet for making a potentially misleading statement regarding the process of mail-in voting, and to offer more context for anyone who may see the Tweet. This action is in line with our recently-updated Civic Integrity Policy. https://t.co/aRbnblUUEO
