Who is Fact Checking Twitter?

The social media platform turned heads last night after inserting a “fact check” on President Trump’s tweet about mail in voting. The President was adamant that mail in voting would cause wide spread voter fraud. In response, Twitter placed a notification under the President’s tweet where users could “learn the facts about mail in voting.”

Tony Katz says that this one action has signaled that Twitter is moving on from their business model as a platform for content and is now in the business of deciding what content is valuable.
