Twitter flags Trump tweets as US election count continues

Twitter has marked a series of tweets from current US president Donald Trump as “disputed and might be misleading,” as a tightly contested election count continues today.

As votes continue to be counted in key battleground states, Trump tweeted claims of the Democrats “trying to STEAL the Election”. He has since continued to send out several other tweets which twitter flagged as “disputed and might be misleading about an election or other civic process”.

Election counts are still underway in key states including Wisconsin and Michigan.

The Trump campaign has ran a closer election than many polls predicted, with fears that the sitting US president may try and contest any result that leads to a Joe Biden victory.
