Twitter indicated that its users "check the facts" in two posts by U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday (26). This is the first time that the social network has published publications by the American president in this way.
The messages refer to the vote in the presidential elections in November this year. Trump suggests that there is fraud in sending ballots to voters by post.
In the past few days, he has been writing posts hinting that states like Michigan and California are defrauding the system, which was widely adopted during the coronavirus pandemic.
On Tuesday, Trump wrote that "mailboxes will be stolen, banknotes will be counterfeited and even illegally printed and fraudulently signed."
According to a Twitter spokesman, quoted by the New York Times, the marks in Tuesday's two posts were included because the tweets "contain potentially misleading information about the voting processes, and have been labeled to provide additional context."
Trump accuses Twitter of 'interference'
Moments later, Trump used Twitter to accuse his own social network of "interfering in the 2020 presidential election." The US president even called the country's news outlets "fake news".
"Twitter is completely stifling free speech, and I, as president, will not allow that to happen!", He tweeted.
