BIG TECH MEDDLING: Twitter Starts “Fact Checking” Trump’s Tweets

OPINION

President Trump accused Twitter of meddling in the 2020 presidential election after the social media platform announced it would label the president’s tweets with a fact check.

“They are saying my statement on Mail-In Ballots, which will lead to massive corruption and fraud, is incorrect, based on fact-checking by Fake News CNN and the Amazon Washington Post,” the president wrote ironically on Twitter. “Twitter is completely stifling FREE SPEECH, and I, as President, will not allow it to happen!”
Twitter on Tuesday for the first time prompted readers to check the facts in tweets sent by U.S. President Donald Trump, warning readers his claims about mail-in ballots were false and had been debunked by fact checkers.

Twitter confirmed this was the first time it had applied a label to a tweet by the president under its new “misleading information” policy, introduced earlier in the month, Reuters reported.
