Twitter has started fact checking Trump’s tweets

On Tuesday, social media giant Twitter, placed a fact check label on some of President Trump’s tweets about the California mail-in ballots.

“There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent. Mail boxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged & even illegally printed out & fraudulently signed. The Governor of California is sending Ballots to millions of people, anyone…..”, the President tweeted.

Just below that tweet, an information symbol appears that takes you to a site with information contrary to what Trump shared.


Twitter spokeswoman Katie Rosborough, told The Washington Post that his tweets “contain potentially misleading information about voting processes and have been labeled to provide additional context around mail-in ballots.”

The platform has been widely criticized for letting misinformation spread and this measure seems to be a step to correct that.

The President blasted Twitter for attempts to “silence conservative voices.”
