Twitter flags video retweeted by President Trump as ‘manipulated media’
Twitter applied its new “manipulated media” label for the first time on Sunday to a deceptively edited video of former vice president Joe Biden. The video was shared by White House social media director Dan Scavino and retweeted by President Trump.
For the first time, Twitter has branded a political video shared by President Donald Trump as “manipulated media.”
The video, which mocked Joe Biden, was originally posted by White House social media director Dan Scavino. The clip included a speech made by Biden on Saturday that was edited to make it appear that the Democratic candidate had inadvertently endorsed the president.
The “manipulated media” stamp is a new Twitter policy meant to combat false political messages and alert users to misleadingly altered media or completely fabricated events. Twitter’s policy, which went into effect on Thursday, defines manipulated posts as any photo, video or audio that has been “significantly altered or fabricated.”
