In an update to its election policies, Twitter said it will add warning labels to candidate tweets on election results, unless the results come from ABC News, the AP, CBS News, CNN, Decision Desk HQ, Fox News or NBC News, or a state authority. In a blog post updated on Monday, Twitter said, “People on Twitter, including candidates for office, may not claim an election win before it is authoritatively called. To determine the results of an election in the US, we require either an announcement from state election officials, or a public projection from at least two authoritative, national news outlets that make independent election calls. Tweets which include premature claims will be labeled and direct people to our official US election page.” Tweets meant to incite interference with the election process or results will be removed.
