Twitter hides Trump mail voting tweet ahead of polling day
Twitter has hidden a tweet from President Donald Trump about voting, hours before election day. On Facebook, the social network did not hide the post, but added the warning: "Both voting by mail and voting in person have a long history of trustworthiness in the US. Voter fraud is extremely rare across voting methods." His rival Joe Biden spent the final hours before polling day urging people to make sure they voted, as well as making explicit and direct attacks on President Trump's record in office. Vast numbers of Americans have already voted and many have done so by postal ballot, known as mail-in voting in the US. Controversy around postal delays has led to concerns that not all ballots would reach counting centres in time. Mr Trump has repeatedly condemned mail-in voting as unsecured and prone to massive voter fraud.
