Twitter fights ‘misinformation’ about postal voting | Abroad


Twitter’s policies will include “emphasizing accurate information about all available voting options, including postal and early voting.” “In the run-up to the 2020 US elections, we are committed to empowering every person entitled to vote to register and vote through partnerships, tools and new policies,” said Jessica Herrera-Flanigan, who commented on Twitter’s public policy. in North and South America.

The first measures will be rolled out next month. Twitter says it is investigating how to expand its “social integrity policy” to address misinformation about postal voting and registration.

Post voting is not new in the United States. In 2016, nearly a quarter of voters cast their vote by mail. According to experts, the methods and decentralized regulations surrounding elections in the US make it very difficult to commit voting fraud by means of postal votes. At the end of last month, Facebook already placed a label with “voting information” on a message from President Trump. Trump’s mail said, in capital letters, that postal votes would lead to a “corrupt election.”
