Twitter criticized reactivation of US election policy for 2020


(MENAFN) Republican backers were incensed by Twitter's announcement on Thursday that it would resume the enforcement of rules that were initially implemented before the 2020 US presidential election.

Jason Miller, a former Trump aide who founded the competing social media platform Gettr, denounced the news as "a repeat of their interference in the 2020 election" by Twitter's liberal executives.

The social media behemoth from Silicon Valley promised to identify "misinformation" and stop it from being spread, support "reputable news sources," and "debunk" any "misleading narratives" regarding election outcomes. The action is taken about three months before the midterm elections for the US Congress.

In an anonymous blog post, Twitter stated that its "Civic Integrity Policy" is applicable to all elections worldwide and that it aims to combat "misleading claims intended to undermine public confidence in an election - including false information about the outcome."
News and resources tailored to particular US states, "voter education" PSAs, "created using information from nonpartisan government and voting advocacy organizations," and "national news in both English and Spanish by reputable news outlets" are all available under the dedicated Explore tab on Twitter.

The company also announced that Twitter would bring back "prebunks" in order to "get ahead of misleading narratives... and to proactively address topics that may be the subject of misinformation" and "share prompts with information about how and where to vote, directly to people's timelines."
