Twitter flagged Trump’s morning tweets as potentially misleading.

first_imgWASHINGTON — Twitter flagged all of President Trump’s early-morning tweets on Saturday as disputed and potentially misleading after he made baseless claims about election irregularities.In a series of posts, Mr. Trump focused his ire on Pennsylvania, where a loss in the state would seal his fate as a one-term president. Mr. Trump was trailing former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. by about 28,000 votes when he tweeted.- Advertisement – Within an hour, Twitter had put a warning label on all four of the tweets, saying that the content of his claims “might be misleading about an election or other civic process.”Twitter has grown increasingly aggressive about flagging Mr. Trump’s false statements even as the president, in the days since Election Day, has spread false stories about “illegal ballots” and has demanded that local officials in several states stop counting ballots prematurely. – Advertisement –last_img read more

Statement: Allegations against the Black Stars are false

first_imgOur attention has been drawn to a report carried by the Ghana News Agency (GNA) and Radio Gold claiming that Ghana attempted to bribe a Nigerien player before Monday’s Africa Cup of Nations clash against Niger.The report was filed by GNA and Radio Gold who are represented in Port Elizabeth by Veronica Commey and Nana Darkwa respectively.We wish to state emphatically that report is false, irresponsible, reckless and mischievous.The Ghana Football Association (GFA) would like to state emphatically that there is no iota of truth in the report and it is the reckless imagination of the authors of the report.GFA is extremely disturbed that at a time that the country is solidly behind the Black Stars to bring the Africa Cup of Nations trophy home, a tiny minority of journalists would engage in such nation-wrecking activity.In as much as the GFA will strive to create opportunities to enhance the work of the media during this tournament, we will not condone acts meant to tarnish the image of the country. We want to assure the people of Ghana that the team is focused on the campaign at the Africa Cup of Nations and with God on our side we will secure victory against Cape Verde on Saturday.last_img read more
