Twitter adds election misinformation warning to top of US feeds

The new labels, which Twitter rolled out Monday, inform users in the U.S. that voting by mail is safe and that the election results may be delayed this year.


The new prompts, which will be available in 42 languages, also link to the company's own Twitter Moments module, with additional context about the election from authoritative sources. The warning labels are the latest in a series of changes Twitter has made in the run-up to the U.S. election in order to slow the spread of misinformation on the platform. "People rely on Twitter for accurate, credible information about how to vote, and the latest election news," a Twitter spokesperson said in a statement, "and we believe it's critical that we make it easy for people to find that information."
