Twitter on Tuesday labeled two of President Trump's tweets about mail-in ballots as being misleading, the first time the company has tagged false claims he has made on the platform. The tweets, which incorrectly declared that mail-in ballots are fraudulent, now have labels that say, "Get the facts about mail-in ballots." The links redirect users to a fact-check page with articles about the matter. A Twitter spokesperson said Trump's tweets "contain potentially misleading information about the voting process and have been labeled to provide additional context." Trump quickly responded, using Twitter to accuse the company of "interfering" in the 2020 presidential election. Twitter, he added, is "completely stifling FREE SPEECH, and I, as President, will not allow it to happen!"
