When you learn my earlier publish, you may need seen a brand-new Twitter label on Trump’s latest wildly misleading tweet: “Election officers have licensed Joe Biden because the winner of the U.S. Presidential election.” Sure, Twitter is now calling the election for Joe Biden on Trump’s personal tweets.
Twitter tells us it’s merely an replace to its present label, designed to “replicate the newest data.”
However there’s a staggering distinction between this label and Twitter’s earlier one, which merely mentioned “A number of sources known as this election otherwise.” That left room for doubt. Now that the Electoral College has voted, Twitter not solely accepting the outcome, however utilizing it to visibly problem the president’s ongoing lie that he received the election.
You may see the primary new instance under.
Will this maintain Trump from repeatedly tweeting “I received”? Uncertain, however I wouldn’t be shocked if his tweets get slightly extra inventive, if he vents extra anger at Twitter, or each.
Right here’s how Trump’s similar deceptive statements look on Fb at the moment, for comparability.
