Twitter flags Trump "mail drop boxes" tweet as disinformation

Twitter is spanking the president more routinely now for disinformation tweets, as the November elections approach. Better late than never.

Today, on Sunday, Twitter added a disclaimer to a bogus Donald Trump tweet criticizing the "mail drop boxes" as a ploy by Democrats. The disclaimer says the tweet violates the company's "civic and election integrity" rules.

Tweeted Trump on Sunday:

So now the Democrats are using Mail Drop Boxes, which are a voter security disaster. Among other things, they make it possible for a person to vote multiple times. Also, who controls them, are they placed in Republican or Democrat areas? They are not Covid sanitized. A big fraud!

From Reuters:

Twitter, in a disclaimer attached to the tweet, said: "Twitter has determined that it may be in the public's interest for the tweet to remain accessible."

Democrats across the country are promoting drop boxes as a convenient and reliable option for voters who do not want to entrust their ballots to the U.S. Postal Service. Republican officials in other states have prevented their use.

And here was the actual tweet.
