Twitter has hidden Trump’s tweet about disappearing lead, his first tweet this morning, today.


Different social media are at their guards on Trump’s statements and on US election’s fake information in general.

In Donald Trump’s first tweet of the day he “wrote his vote advantage in key Democrat-run states had "started to magically disappear"” as BBC stated.

Another tweet about him claiming, “his opponents "are trying to steal the election"” was hidden too and on both messages, twitter limited users ability to like and reply to the posts.

His most recent tweet said: "Last night I was leading, often solidly, in many key states, in almost all instances Democrat run and controlled.

"Then, one by one, they started to magically disappear as surprise ballot dumps were counted. VERY STRANGE."

It took almost half another for twitter to react.

 On the other side, Joe Biden’s first tweet was like “we won't rest until everyone's vote is counted". The tweet is still on.


Facebook reacted too. It added a fact that checks to Donald Trump’s messages on his profile.

It has been at its guards about Joe Biden and Donald Trump’s messages the whole day.

"Once President Trump began making premature claims of victory, we started running notifications on Facebook and Instagram that votes are still being counted and a winner is not projected," it said.


Recently, youtube has shut down several “live -streaming” fake videos about US Election results.

The FBI at its side claimed it is investigating a series of “robocalls”.


The Washington Post staid that “estimated 10 million automated calls were made over recent days telling people to "stay safe and stay home". They did not specifically mention voting, and their origin remains unknown”
