Twitter to expand ambit of rules against false news on mail-in ballots
NEW YORK (US) – Twitter announced late on Wednesday that it would expand the ambit of its rules against misinformation regarding mail-in ballots and early voting in the US presidential election.
The firm will come up with new policies “that emphasize accurate information about all available options to vote, including by mail and early voting.”
“Ahead of the 2020 US Election, we’re focused on empowering every eligible person to register and vote through partnerships, tools and new policies,” said Twitter vice president for public policy in the Americas Jessica Herrera-Flanigan said.
The firm said it is looking at ways to expand its “civic integrity policies” to address fake news about mail-in voting and other procedures, including registration.
