Twitter labels edited Biden video 'manipulated tweet'
Twitter has used its new "Manipulated media" tag for the first time on an edited video of a speech by Joe Biden. The tag, introduced on 5 March, tells readers when a picture or video has been "Significantly altered or fabricated". Twitter's manipulated media policy covers content that is "Likely to impact public safety or cause serious harm" including things that have been heavily edited. The social media giant has been criticised for taking at least 18 hours to place a manipulated tweet tag on Mr Scavino's post. Mr Scavino has defended the video, claiming it was not manipulated.
