Twitter updates its policies ahead of US midterms

Twitter announced on Thursday new updates for its approach to the upcoming 2022 midterm elections in the United States scheduled for early November, confirming a set of changes on its social media platform to "protect civic conversation."

Among many changes, Twitter said it would continue applying its Civic Integrity Policy to diminish "harmful misleading information" on elections, including fighting against fake accounts.

Controversial tweets will still be labeled as potentially misleading, leading to fewer likes and shares on the platform, with politicians running for office receiving a label that clearly shows candidate information. Lastly, the company will also launch a dedicated Explore tab which will contain news and voter education announcements.
