Twitter rolls out plans ‘to protect’ US midterm elections and suppress ‘misleading information’

Aug 11, 2022 | Political News

Twitter has rolled out some new terms and policies ahead of the 2022 midterm elections, during which the Republican Party is expected to overtake the Democrats to earn a majority in the US House. The election is seen as a barometer of how the Biden administration and their leadership has performed since taking office, and so far, the pressure is definitely on.

These changes are in addition to those made in the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election, in which Twitter’s suppression and censorship of information played a key role in misinforming the public.

Twitter is stepping up to bolster their terms and prevent “misinformation,” that catch-all concept for anything that goes against the Democrat-driven narrative. As such, they’ve announced “steps we’re taking ahead of the US midterms to protect civic conversation on Twitter.”
