Twitter updates labels to confirm Joe Biden as next US President


Team Udayavani, Dec 20, 2020, 4:00 PM IST

Twitter has updated its labels for US presidential election-related misinformation to show Joe Biden as the confirmed President-elect.

Before this, Twitter’s labels called any claims to victory as disputed or misleading. The updated Twitter label says, “Election officials have certified Joe Biden as the winner of the U.S. Presidential election.”

According to Fox10 news, The change follows mounting criticism by democracy experts who said social media platforms’ labels haven’t done nearly enough in the post-election period.

While Twitter said last month that it labeled roughly 300,000 tweets for content that was disputed or potentially misleading during a two-week period covering the election, critics have said such labels are ill-matched for the torrent of false claims that continue to divide Americans.
