Twitter hides Trump tweet for misleading claim

Twitter hid a tweet posted by President Donald Trump on Tuesday night, claiming that his re-election bid was "great" and that his political opponents were "trying to steal in the election".

Twitter said it had posted the warning on Trump's tweet, without providing any support, "for making a potentially misleading allegation about elections."

The president later repeated the message (which he had also posted on Twitter) during a press conference in which he falsely claimed that he had won the elections. "It's about scam of the American public, "said Trump, without providing evidence data. "This is a shame for our country." Counting of votes in some states was delayed due to the excessive number of remote votes (because of the pandemic, voters were given the opportunity to vote remotely).  

Twitter points out and reduces the scope of tweets that contain unverified or false allegations about the vote. The company pointed out various tweets from him Mike Roman, director of Trump campaigns, which contained misleading allegations about the vote. In a tweet In a statement entitled "Learn about US 2020 election security efforts", Roman falsely claimed that Democratic Party officials were blocking Trump's "poll watchers" in Philadelphia. "The theft has begun!" He wrote on Twitter.

As Americans turn to remote voting amid its pandemic COVID-19, most likely we will not know the winner on Tuesday night. More than 100 million Americans have already voted with ballots in most states already closed, CNN reports - these votes represent more than 45% of registered voters in USA. Election officials said it would take days for these votes to be counted.
