In a first, Twitter labels Trump tweets misleading

Breaking ground, Twitter labeled two of President Donald Trump’s tweets “potentially misleading.” The tweets falsely claimed that mail-in ballots would lead to voter fraud. Trump accused Twitter of “stifling FREE SPEECH.” (CNN, May 27, 2020, by Brian Fung)

Trump also threatened the social media with regulations and shut downs. He said that the tech companies are silencing conservative voices and asserted, “Big Action to follow.” A conservative senator said the social media receives federal subsidies and immunity from lawsuits only to censor conservatives.
