Since Election Day, Twitter has issued content alerts for 19 tweets by Donald Trump.
The U.S. president, who lost Joe Biden’s U.S. election, took to the social media site with a series of furious tweets alleging without proof that his rivals stole the U.S. presidential election from him.
Twitter took the unprecedented step of warning the tweets that the president’s site statements contained material that may be “misleading.” about the election.

A alert on several tweets in the timeline of the president reads, “Some or all of the content shared in this tweet is controversial and could be misleading about the election or other civil process.”

Trump also retweeted a statement in addition to the notice, which was also “controversial”
After his campaign held a press conference at a small Pennsylvania garden center, Donald Trump faced criticism after initially saying it would be held at a luxurious hotel.
Mr. Trump had said in a since-deleted tweet that there will be a “great press conference” on Saturday morning local time at the Four Seasons.

Donald Trump Jr. also used the forum after he tweeted, “70 million p***ed off Republicans and not one city burned to the ground” to spread his views and faced criticism.
It has been confirmed that the Twitter rights he has as world leader in January will be lost to Donald Trump.
Twitter applies special guidelines for world leaders to leave rule-breaking content online if there is “clear public interest value in keeping the tweet on the service.”
It’s unclear whether the tweets the president has deleted since Election Day included warnings before they were removed, and the 19 tweets refer only to tweets from the main account and not replies.
