Twitter on Wednesday said it's rolling out a tool that lets users report misleading information on the 2020 US election. People can report content they believe includes false information on where or how to vote or register to vote. They can also call out content that "intends to suppress or intimidate someone from voting," as well as anything claiming a false affiliation with or impersonating a candidate, elected official, political party or government entity.
"This tool has been an important aspect of our efforts to protect the health of the Twitter conversation for elections around the globe, including in India, the UK, and across the EU," the company tweeted.
Twitter says the tool will be available during "key moments" of the election.
This could be part of the social media giant's strategy to avoid turmoil after 2016 US presidential election.in the
