my notes ( ? )

Several of the president’s tweets overlaid with disclaimers ... invoking Twitter's Civic Integrity Policy, which prevents users from manipulating elections. Trump’s tweets also effectively throttled by preventing other users from amplifying them. Facebook’s measures were less accusatory, attaching an informational label.

Neither stopped Trump using them. Both had flaws:

  • " Breaking election news... hit with misplaced warning labels",
  • they didn't label material generated off-platform, like clips of Trump's infamous Wednesday press conference.
  • Facebook labelled some Biden posts which didn't appear to disseminate misinformation.
  • some stuff got through
