Twitter as given a fact-check label for the first time to a post by US President Donald Trump.
US President Donald Trump had tweeted, “There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent.”
Twitter took action under its new policy and put a warning label under the post.
However, Trump reacted to the action taken by Twitter and responded to the tweet. He said that the social media app “is completely stifling free speech”.
Trump’s notification shows a blue exclamation mark below the tweets. It suggested readers get the facts about mail-in ballots”.
According to details, Twitter’s link takes the users to a page on which Trump claims about mail-in ballots are termed as unsubstantiated. Twitter cites reporting on the issue by international news sources.
After that, Twitter conducted a “what you need to know” where it corrects false claims by the US President.
However, Trump accused the social media giant of interfering in the US presidential election that will take place on 3 November 2020.
He said that it was “completely stifling free speech, and I, as president, will not allow it to happen”.
Donald Trump’s presidential campaign manager Brad Parscale also talked against Twitter.
He twitted, “Partnering with biased fake news ‘fact checkers’ is a smokescreen to lend Twitter’s obvious political tactics false credibility. There are many reasons we pulled all our advertising from Twitter months ago, and clear political bias is one of them,”
