Twitter announced on Thursday that it would reactivate the enforcement of rules first introduced ahead of the 2020 US presidential election, prompting a furious reaction from Republican supporters.
Former Trump aide Jason Miller, who started a rival social media company Gettr, condemned the news as an “attempt from Twitter’s liberal executives to control the outcome of elections and the democratic process,” calling them “a repeat of their interference in the 2020 election.”
The Silicon Valley social media giant said it will label “misinformation” and prevent its sharing, promote “reputable news outlets,” and “prebunk” any “misleading narratives” about election results. The move comes roughly three months ahead of the US congressional midterms.
The “Civic Integrity Policy” applies to all elections globally, Twitter explained in an unsigned blog post, adding that it aims to counter “misleading claims intended to undermine public confidence in an election – including false information about the outcome.”
