Donald Trump Tweet the First ‘Manipulated Media’ from Twitter

Published

on

For the first time in history, a tweet of the President of the United States, Donald Trump was labelled “misleading” by Twitter.

On Sunday, Twitter did a “manipulated media” label to a certain tweet that has a video of Joe Biden that was posted by the head of Trump’s social media, Dan Scavino, and looking as if it was edited to make it look like Biden is, campaigning as a Democratic Presidential nominee, admitted that Trump’s re-election is inevitable.

Twitter said that it would take action against misleading people.

For the first time, the social media platform used a tag addressing its new policy that says, “synthetic and manipulated media” and is likely to cause harm. This was in effect on March 5 that says:

We know that some Tweets include manipulated photos or videos that can cause people harm. Today we’re introducing a new rule and a label that will address this and give people more context around these Tweets

You may not deceptively share synthetic or manipulated media that are likely to cause harm.

Also, we may label Tweets containing synthetic and manipulated media to help people understand the media’s authenticity and to provide additional context.

If we believe that media shared in a Tweet have been significantly and deceptively altered or fabricated, we will provide additional context on the Tweet.

This means we may:

Apply a label to the Tweet;

Show a warning to people before they Retweet or like the Tweet;

Reduce the visibility of the Tweet on Twitter and/or prevent it from being recommended; and/or

Provide additional explanations or clarifications, as available, such as a landing page with more context.”

On the other hand, the campaign of Biden was lashed out from Facebook for also not putting a label on the same video that Trump shared on Twitter.

By Monday, such a label wasn’t showing up for some users.
That video clip was concluded by CNN and said that it was deceptively edited and made it look like Biden is endorsing Trump.

It shows Biden struggling with a line during his speech in Kansas City, Missouri on Saturday and was saying “Excuse me. We can only re-elect Donald Trump.”

But in fact, they left out some portions from the sentence. The full context would have been “Excuse me. We can only re-elect Donald Trump if we get engaged in this circular firing squad here. It’s gotta be a positive campaign.

The video has been viewed 6 million times on Monday morning and was shared by some conservative people such as Mark Levin, Sean Hannity of Fox News, websites like Townhall and RedState and Sanders supporters.

According to the manager of Biden, “We live in an era of increasingly rampant disinformation, and there are only two ways to address this toxic force that is corroding our democracy: responsibly and in a way that serves the public, or irresponsibly and in a nakedly self-serving manner. Facebook’s malfeasance when it comes to trafficking in blatantly false information is a national crisis in this respect.”

He added, “Their unethical behavior is not acceptable, and it must change.”
