Three Recent Al Jazeera Stories:
Donald Trump is often called the Tweeter in Chief.
Twitter is the U.S. president’s main social media platform.
It’s where he announces policies to more than 80 million followers, and where he’s attacked opponents and spread misinformation.
Twitter is now in the president’s firing line.
It placed a fact-check warning on two Trump tweets that falsely claimed postal ballots would lead to voter fraud.
The president accused the platform – in a tweet – of stifling free speech and silencing conservative voices.
But Twitter has been criticised for refusing to act on other Trump posts, such as those repeating a debunked claim that a TV host and former congressman was involved in the death of an intern.
With the U.S. election just six months away, can social media companies balance freedom of speech while rooting out misinformation?
