This follows Twitter tampering with Trump’s tweets to alert people to fact check his claims.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday threatened to regulate or shut down social media companies after Twitter added a warning to two of his tweets, alerting readers to fact check the president’s claims.

Outraged, Trump tweeted back at Twitter that the company “is now interfering in the 2020 Presidential Election.” He added: “They are saying my statement on mail-in ballots, which will lead to massive corruption and fraud, is incorrect, based on fact-checking by fake news CNN and the Amazon Washington Post.” He further exclaimed:.

Two particular tweets read: “There is no way (zero) that mail-in ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent.

However, Twitter for the first time attached a message that reads “Get the facts about mail-in ballots” to Trump’s tweets, linking to a page disputing the president’s accuracy.

The page states that “Trump makes [an] unsubstantiated claim that mail-in ballots will lead to voter fraud,” citing news sources Trump often calls “fake news.” According to the page, Trump’s “claims are unsubstantiated, according to CNN, Washington Post and others.

Comments flooded Twitter on the matter, with some criticizing Twitter’s action for editing any tweets at all while others are glad that Trump got fact-checked.

Another user opined: “So glad that Twitter fact checked the lies spew by Donald Trump, if they have done that early we could have avoided listening to POTUS lying about the coronavirus and saved over 100,000 American lives.” A third user expressed, “Frankly, it’s appallingly that Trump has not been banned across all platforms for his constant lies and dangerous misinformation
