This is false. I assume Twitter will label shortly.
Sweet. Troll generals are spreading tweets from Russia Today about protests to try to create election chaos. Meanwhile we keep counting votes calmly.
And a promise from the king of deceptive and misleading information. Ignore him. But be aware they are at work to try to create unrest.
And there he is. Again, ignore it, certainly don’t share it, but no doubt this video will be viral in the next hour and I don’t know how Twitter will handle it. Facebook will likely not do anything. Real journalists will likely need to vet and confirm/debunk it.
Approaching 20k retweets on Twitter in 20 minutes. Also on Facebook. This messaging combined with the calls to protest tomorrow are a bad combination. If only we had a president who would speak up and tell everyone to be patient as the votes are counted.
Protests tomorrow morning. Crazy conspiracies being passed around on Facebook in Michigan.
It’s now closing in on 60k retweets in barely 90 minutes. I have to believe Twitter is deciding how to handle. Don Jr has now amplified along with most of his troll generals. And O’Keefe, who is generally an unreliable source, claims the USPS is looking whether to investigate.
Meanwhile back to Trump Jr who is literally just flooding the zone with toxic garbage to incite the public. He’s doing the dirty work for his dad. Possibly to save his own liberty. Important to keep that in mind. Won’t go down lightly.
And the conspiracy theory about overly high turnout in Wisconsin (ignoring same day registration in the math) has jumped from tweet to WSJ opinion columnist to Hannity and back to Twitter...

Like our own President? As I reviewed the press conference late tonight, I wondered at what point we sound the alarm that he’s using active measures on us?
Please stop and read this. It’s from the Republican-led bipartisan Senate Intel Report Volume 5. It’s important we recognize what is happening. It was a landmark report and many of the same actors are still active and engaged. Image
This was written six weeks ago. We knew it was coming.… Image

One of the WSJ reporters who covers Facebook. He’s absolutely right. It’s a solution which treats all accounts and users equally benefiting those who seek to spread false election info and harms those who seek/share truth. Twitter does it right. More evidence for FB antitrust.
Good ⬆️ contrast here. Twitter added “curtain” label requiring click to see tweet plus eliminated social sharing tools. Facebook did nothing but add same neutral message it adds to factually correct info. Everyone should be telling their friends & family FB is failing democracy.
Perfect illustration and LOVE having voices sharing this. The sooner everyone understands this the better. Facebook wants everyone talking about censorship (take-down of content/accounts) but this is actually about the mechanics of spread and counter-speech. friction baby!!!

Repeatedly sharing easily debunked conspiracy theories on the brink of defeat is a hell of a final lesson to teach all the kids.
Here is a thread explaining the background thread on Trump's tweet which he retweeted again after Twitter (rightly) put a curtain in front it. I'm disappointed it has 40k+ retweets as Twitter should also be decelerating it.
One of the many 2020 lessons will be Facebook entirely failed (again) by giving into political pressure and business risk. Unlike Twitter, they mostly avoided any moves which would have a worse effect with our White House. I hope the public makes them pay for this spineless ness.

“This is the theatre of authoritarianism” ...finally we have a voice of reason on ABC right now. “We should be blunt about this.”
Step up news networks.
The answer isn’t to simply say “we saw this coming.” Correct him real-time and state he has zero authority here. The counting will continue. Every vote will be counted. Calm the public, do not allow him to incite the public.
This is a reasonable prediction. Intentionally stir up the public over the next 48hrs.

YouTube’s UK public policy head is testifying right now to Parliament (@CommonsDCMS). Maybe they’ll do a solid and ask -> what they plan to do in the case of a premature declaration of victory in US election? Facebook, Twitter, etc have all stated. Not YouTube. @julianknight15
Here is a link for those interested.…

Mind-blowing that passages like this are being unsealed from the Mueller Report on the eve of the 2020 election.
