The alarming statement comes a day after Twitter fact-checked one of President Trump's tweets for the first time. "And we will admit to and own any mistakes we make", he writes.

Trump reiterated his accusations of political bias by such technology platforms, tweeting: "Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices". He has said he thinks expanding vote-by-mail would increase participation in the 2020 election and doom Republican candidates nationwide - a study from Stanford University last week was the latest to find no partisan advantage from mail-in voting, or perhaps a slight boost for Republicans - and he falsely claims it increases vote fraud.

The choice of Twitter to note a few of Donald Trump's tweets regarding mail-in tallies with notifications indicating they included false information, might have rated by the several doubters of the United States head of state, however some state the action was short-sighted. Hence, the company made a decision to place a disclaimer on the tweets, which will link users to a Twitter page devoted to the topic. "More transparency from us is critical so folks can clearly see the why behind our actions", he said.

A draft version of the executive order implies that the administration would take aim at a law known as Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, a law that protects online platforms from legal liability for the content published by users. The nonprofit, which Borrman refused to name, found it didn't violate Twitter's policy to interfere with an election, but decided on recommending a warning label because of a clause of the terms that stated, "We will continue to introduce new labels to provide context around different types of unverified claims and rumors as needed".

"And they hand them to people that are signing the ballots down the end of the street", Trump said to reporters at the White House on Thursday.
