Tell Facebook & Twitter: Stop Election Lies
Like all of you, we’ve been paying close attention to the aftermath of the 2020 election. And we’ve been sharply focused on how the media and social-media platforms have responded to President Trump and his enablers attempts to sow doubt, spread disinformation and discredit the election results — despite a total lack of evidence.
Trump’s reach on social media is massive and the platforms aren’t doing enough to curb his lies. Facebook has added weak content warnings and is still allowing his messages to be shared. And as Trump continues to tweet false claims, his repeated violations are still reaching hundreds of thousands of people.
Our democracy hangs in the balance. Tell Facebook and Twitter to remove lies about the 2020 election.
