    Twitter CEO Elon Musk, in his latest bizarre change to his newly-acquired social media company, announced Thursday that he will grant “amnesty” to suspended Twitter accounts—opening the door for a spike in harassment, hate speech and misinformation, online safety experts say. The billionaire’s decision seemingly came from a poll he posted to his timeline asking Twitter users whether suspended accounts that have not “broken the law” or took part in “egregious spam” should be given a second chance. The yes vote was 72%. “The people have spoken,” Musk tweeted. “Amnesty begins next week. Vox Populi, Vox Dei.” Musk had previously floated the idea of reinstating accounts, but said last month that Twitter would not do so until a new “content moderation council with widely diverse viewpoints” was set in place. He also promised that no “major content decisions or account reinstatements will happen before that council convenes.” It’s unclear whether Twitter’s content moderation team is in place to handle what’s certain to be an influx of hateful comments that breach Twitter guidelines should nearly all suspended accounts...
    The Arizona Republican Party has filed a lawsuit seeking to extend voting hours, joined by the Republican National Committee, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and the campaigns for GOP Senate nominee Blake Masters and GOP gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake. #BREAKINGRepublican Natl Cmte issues stmt saying it has joined the lawsuit by #AZsen candidate #BlakeMasters and #AZgov candidate #KariLake "to extend poll hours in #MaricopaCounty [#Arizona] and correct poll worker errors."#Election2022 #ElectionDay #AZpol pic.twitter.com/HgCLoHqtXg — Devon Heinen (@DevonHeinen) November 8, 2022 MSNBC’s Vaughan Hillyard reported on the lawsuit from Arizona, saying that the Republicans had cited issues that about 20 percent of the voting centers had in Maricopa County with the tabulating machines. All votes in Arizona are by paper ballot, Hillyard noted, and “the issue was the tabulating machines at some locations were not accepting some of the ballots and rejecting them,” however, county officials had confirmed those votes “will still count, they will just not be tabulated until tomorrow when they are taken to the main tabulating center in downtown Phoenix.” There were other complaints about long lines, Hillyard...
    By Aradhana Aravindan | Bloomberg Elon Musk has started a poll on Twitter Inc. asking users whether he should bring back short-video app Vine, which was shut down by the social media platform in 2016. Musk has previously run polls on whether he should sell 10% of his stake in Tesla Inc. and if the platform should include an edit button. While the votes did side in favor of the final outcome, it’s unclear how much of an influence they played. Twitter bought Vine in 2012 and it helped a raft of internet stars get noticed by a wider audience. Those creators eventually left the platform over disagreements over compensation. It was then shut after Twitter was unwilling to continue investing in the app. The following year ByteDance Ltd. acquired Musical.ly before combining it with its own short-video service TikTok.

    Screenshot via YouTube Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza polled Twitter Tuesday over whether it is “appropriate to cheer” if China shoots down House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s plane for visiting Taiwan. Pelosi landed in Taiwan Tuesday amid a warning from a state media analyst that her presence in the self-governing island would equate to an “invasion.” The California Democrat ignored the apparent warning and was supported by more than two-dozen Republican lawmakers.

    In this article TWTRJoe Raedle | Getty Images News | Getty ImagesTwitter is testing an edit button, the company said on Tuesday. The feature has been one of the most requested changes to the social networking service for over a decade. Currently, in order to fix a typo in a tweet, users have to delete it and resend the tweet, which can limit the number of people who see it. "Edit has been the most requested Twitter feature for many years. People want to be able to fix (sometimes embarrassing) mistakes, typos and hot takes in the moment," tweeted Jay Sullivan, Twitter's vice president of consumer product. The move also comes the same day as Twitter announced that Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk will join the company's board of directors. On Monday, after his 9.2% stake in Twitter was revealed through a regulatory filing, Musk tweeted a poll to his followers asking whether Twitter should add an edit button. That message was retweeted by Parag Agrawal, Twitter's current CEO, who added, "The consequences of this poll will be important."...

The account of conservative Charlie Kirk was also recently slapped down by Twitter for a tweet related to Levine. Tucker Carlson, commenting on the offending posts from the Babylon Bee and Kirk, tweeted, "But wait. Both of these tweets are true" — Twitter then took issue with Carlson's tweet. Last year, Twitter permanently booted President Donald Trump off of the platform while he was still in office.
    Georgia is ground zero in the battle for the balance of power in Washington, D.C., as control of the U.S. Senate now hinges on the outcome of the two Senate runoff races in the Peach State. With the Senate majority leadership within his reach, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) recently declared, “Now we take Georgia, and then we change America.” As Georgia voters head to the polls today, Hollywood elites are still making the hard sell for Democrats, urging residents to cast their ballots for candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, thereby ensuring party domination over Congress. In what may be an ominous preview of things to come, Borat filmmaker and Seinfeld writer Larry Charles told Democrats: “You must not and cannot accept any version of loss in Georgia.” Most Hollywood elites played cheerleader on Tuesday, pumping up Ossoff and Warnock on social media while reminding voters about their rights. Others promoted free rides to the polls via Lyft and other services. Lady Gaga urged Georgians to vote in-person or by mail-in ballot. She also tweeted an election-themed animation that misspells the...
    Twitter and Facebook pinned warning labels on President Donald Trump's posts claiming that Democrats are trying to 'steal' the election minutes after they went live.  Trump took to social media just before 1am on Wednesday, proclaiming: 'We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the Election. We will never let them do it.'  He also suggested that states are accepting late ballots, adding: 'Votes cannot be cast after the Polls are closed!' Twitter wasted no time flagging Trump's tweet with the message: 'Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about an election or other civic process.' Facebook followed suit with its own warning, which stated: 'Final results may be different than initial vote counts, as ballot counting will continue for days or weeks.'   Trump's posts appeared to be in direct response to a dramatic statement Joe Biden made minutes earlier, asking Americans to be patient and claiming he would eventually be the victor of the presidential election despite failing to land knockout blows in Florida, Ohio and Texas.  'It ain't over...

    The big day is finally here! If you’re already on Twitter—or you’ve joined the polling lines today or in the past couple of days—you might have noticed a particular trend outside of polling places. What? People dancing. If you’ve been lucky enough to come across a Joy to the Polls celebration, you likely experienced the truly exuberant atmosphere for yourself. If not, the videos are equally smile-inducing. Because there truly is so much hope and happiness at the polls across the nation, we gathered some non-music inspiration too.  Of course, people should not need to stand in long lines to vote. Voting should be safe, accessible, and efficient. Long, inaccessible lines are just another example of voter suppression in action, especially amid a global pandemic. But people—including elected officials—are outside among the masses, trying to make the best of it. Let’s check out some sweet moments below. On Mobilize America, there are hundreds of campaigns and local Democratic parties organizing (mostly virtual) get-out-the-vote activities. Find one near you, and connect with members of your community while doing work to turn...

    Loading the player... What was supposed to be a peaceful march to encourage residents in Graham, North Carolina to cast their ballots on the last day of early voting Saturday resulted in a chaotic scene where police violently arrested and pepper-sprayed protesters — including children and the elderly. About 200 demonstrators gathered for the “I Am Change” rally in which participants planned to march to a local polling station. Before heading to the polls, the demonstrators gathered for an event outside of the Alamance County Courthouse. They chose the location because of a Confederate statue that stands on the government property.

    The major polls all largely pointed towards one winner following the final 2020 presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden on Thursday. YouGov’s snap poll of nearly 500 viewers — all registered voters — revealed that 54 percent thought Biden was the winner. 35 percent thought Trump had won, while 9 percent called it a tie. Viewers were split, however, on whether the debate was a force for good or not, with 46 percent calling it positive and 43 percent negative. CNN’s post-debate poll found that 53 percent thought Biden was the victor, with 39 percent calling Trump the winner. “Viewers once again said that Biden’s criticisms of Trump were largely fair (73% said they were fair, 26% unfair), and they split over whether Trump’s attacks on Biden were fair (50% said yes, 49% no),” CNN reported, noting that the debate “did not do much to move impressions of either candidate.” Early results from the Data For Progress snap poll showed Biden ahead at 52 percent, and Trump at 41 percent, with 7 percent unsure....
    Colorado politicians are pushing back against a rumored Immigration and Customs Enforcement operation that could hit Denver before the election. “The President’s proposed ICE raids are intended to incite fear for political gain," says Representative Joe Neguse. "His attempts to demonize immigrants will not work in Denver, and will not work in Colorado. We need humane and comprehensive immigration reform, not an administration that cruelly rips people away from their homes and their families." On September 29, the Washington Post reported that the Trump administration was preparing an "immigration enforcement blitz" focusing on cities that have adopted so-called sanctuary policies. The "sanctuary op" would begin in California, likely in early October, and then expand to other places, including Denver, according to the Post piece.Related Stories House Subcommittee Report Takes Aim at Aurora Immigrant Detention Facility Asian Americans Protest ICE Head Tony Pham, Vietnamese Refugee Detainee Transfers Lead to COVID-19 Increase at Aurora ICE Facility President Donald Trump is down in the polls, and launching a high-profile ICE operation just weeks before the November 3 election would take a page from his...
    JOE Biden was scorned as "truly tragic"after playing Latin hit 'Despacito' - which translates to 'slowly' - and dancing before a speech. US President Donald Trump, who has for years mocked his Democratic rival as "Slow Joe", tweeted "China is drooling. They can’t believe this!” 6Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden speaks during a Hispanic Heritage Month event, September 15, in Kissimmee, FloridaCredit: AP:Associated Press Why is Joe Biden trending? Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has set Twitter ablaze with the hashtag '#DespacitoJoe' after appearing in Kissimmee, Florida. Before delivering his speech, he took out his phone and started playing Latin hit Despacito. He also danced momentarily during the 15-second snippet of music - one of YouTube's most popular videos with nearly seven billion views, reports Billboard. It didn't take long for the mocking to start, with one woman tweeting: "Just when I thought he couldn’t get more awkward, José Biden just pulled out his cell phone and started playing Despacito before he began speaking at a Hispanic Heritage Month event. I have no words.” Another said: “Cringe. Next thing you...

    Twitter and Facebook both flagged a post from President Trump that some argued encourages voters to cast multiple ballots. On Thursday, the president urged Americans to send mail-in ballots in "as EARLY as possible" and suggested they also go to a polling location on Election Day to see if their original vote had been counted. “Based on the massive number of Unsolicited & Solicited Ballots that will be sent to potential Voters for the upcoming 2020 Election, & in order for you to MAKE SURE YOUR VOTE COUNTS & IS COUNTED, SIGN & MAIL IN your Ballot as EARLY as possible.

    From the July 23 edition of OAN's "After Hours": ALEX SALVI, host: When you look at the polls right now, I know that a lot of people are very skeptical, acknowledging what they saw in 2016, are you concerned at all?   JENNA ELLIS: Not at all. And the reason for that is not only are we seeing a repeat of 2016 and the polls that the Democrats want to manipulate. If you look at the mainstream media polls and how they're underrepresenting Republicans as well as likely voters in those polls, we're seeing, you know, yet again a 2016.   But also, our internal polling where we want to actually see what's going on and where the president and the campaign are situated, those internal numbers are actually doing very well.   And if you look at, also, I know that Twitter polls are, you know, a wide source of controversy but if you look at even those polls that are open to anyone to join in but they can only vote once, and those have over 100,000 responses,...
    Senate Finance Committee chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) on Wednesday said that despite polling, he thinks President Donald Trump was in a good position to get reelected in 2020. Grassley during Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto” urged Trump to focus on the American people rather than himself if he wants to defeat presumptive 2020 Democratic nominee former Vice President Joe Biden. He also called on the president to show more “empathy” if he wants to improve in the polls. “I think that he’s in about the same position he was four years ago from the standpoint of what the polls show, and then you know the polls were wrong,” Grassley advised. “But let me give you an example: 124 days until the election. This election’s about the future. It’s about 329 million Americans. It’s not about one American, just Trump, and as long as Trump keeps it on what he wants to do for the American people, and that’s what he’s going to do, I’m sure. He’ll get re-elected.” He added, “Also, I think that emphasis upon in his Twitter, because...
    President Trump took to Twitter on Saturday to lash out at his political enemies and denounce polls showing him losing to ‘corrupt’ Joe Biden as he vowed to do away with Obamacare, which he called a ‘joke.’ ‘Do not believe the Fake News Media,’ Trump tweeted on Saturday. ‘Oklahoma speech had the highest Saturday television ratings in @FoxNews history. ‘@seanhannity dominated T.V. with my interview on Thursday night, more than @CNN & MSDNC COMBINED. ‘These are the real polls, the Silent Majority, not FAKE POLLS!’ ‘MSDNC’ is a mocking reference to the left-leaning cable channel MSNBC, with the letters ‘DNC’ standing for Democratic National Committee. President Trump hit out at his enemies on Saturday, denouncing 'fake news' for reporting unfavorable poll numbers and vowing to defeat 'corrupt' Joe Biden in November The implication of Trump’s reference to ‘MSDNC’ is that MSNBC is a propaganda tool of the Democratic Party. In a follow-up tweet, the president wrote: ‘We will win the Election against Corrupt Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Schumer. ‘We will...
