On Monday, Twitter flagged a tweet by U.S. President Donald Trump about mail-in ballots, adding a disclaimer describing the post’s content as disputed and potentially misleading.
Trump tweeted late on Monday: “Big problems and discrepancies with Mail In Ballots all over the USA. Must have final total on November 3rd”, with the tweet giving no evidence for his assertion.
“Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about how to participate in an election or another civic process”, Twitter’s disclaimer said.
The disclaimer included a link to a page highlighting how mail voting was legal and safe.
