Twitter on Monday flagged a tweet by President Trump that implied voting by mail is problematic.
“Big problems and discrepancies with Mail In Ballots all over the USA. Must have final total on November 3rd,” Trump tweeted.
Twitter’s clapback read, “Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about how to participate in an election or another civic process.”

The flag included a link to an explanation of the safety and security of voting by mail.
Twitter has been pushing back against false and misleading claims by numerous top-level politicians and advisers.
Last week, the platform blocked the tweet of a Trump coronavirus adviser who undermined the importance of mask usage in preventing infection. Earlier this month, Twitter locked Trump’s account after he revealed a New York Post columnist’s email address.
The move is in keeping with Twitter’s new prompt, which debuted Monday, according to Forbes.
The service will top everyone’s news feed with a warning about potential misinformation regarding mail-in ballots.
“You might encounter unconfirmed claims that voting by mail leads to election fraud,” the warning reads.
