Social media platforms take extra steps to protect voter turnout
NEW YORK, N.Y. (KYMA, KECY) - Twitter and Pinterest are rolling out new efforts to root out voter misinformation ahead of the November elections.
Twitter has created a new tool to make it easier for users to report tweets broadcasting false information about registering to vote or casting a ballot.
Pinterest has announced it will remove posts misleading people about when, how, and where they can vote.
Most major social media platforms already ban material seeking to suppress voting rights, but the companies say they want to do more to protect voter turnout on Election Day.
