Twitter continued to slap warnings on President Trump’s posts about counting ballots as Democratic challenger Joe Biden closes in on amassing the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the election.
Trump tweeted “STOP THE COUNT!” and “ANY VOTE THAT CAME IN AFTER ELECTION DAY WILL NOT BE COUNTED!” Twitter masked the second tweet, saying that it “might be misleading about an election or other civic process.”
A number of states — including the critical swing state of Pennsylvania — are legally tallying mail-in and absentee ballots that were postmarked by the deadlines set by the states but not after Election Day. The social media platform on Wednesday flagged five of the president’s tweets that alleged ballots are “disappearing” and turning up by “surprise” and eating into his vote totals, especially in Pennsylvania.
Some Twitter users were blocked from sharing the president’s tweets.
Trump and many conservative voices have blasted the tech giant for unfairly and seemingly selectively censoring tweets from the president and other Republican users without taking similar actions against Democrats or liberals.
