Twitter adds ‘Get the Facts’ label to Trump’s fraudulent tweets – but is it enough?

Published

on

For the first time Twitter has inserted a label directly onto two tweets. President Donald Trump was the first recipient of what some are calling a “warning label,” but what appears to be a gentle offer to “get the facts.” Trump, some believe, was engaging in voter suppression.

In response to the two false, fear-mongering tweets Trump posted Tuesday morning, the social media giant appended a link that reads: “Get the facts about mail-in ballots”:

The link goes to a Twitter page offering articles on Trump’s false and fact-less tweets, along with three new fact checks.

Some are calling the move by Twitter “huge.” The company is under the gun from the Trump administration, along with other tech giants. Trump has promised a committee to investigate so-called anti-conservative “bias” among tech firms.

But others are saying it’s not enough.

Twitter spokesperson Katie Rosborough told The Washington Post Trump’s tweets “contain potentially misleading information about voting processes and have been labeled to provide additional context around mail-in ballots.”
