Twitter continues taking baby steps in the right direction by banning the following under the category of manipulating or interfering in elections:
- Misleading information about how to vote or register to vote (for example, that you can vote by Tweet, text message, email, or phone call);
- Misleading information about requirements for voting, including identification requirements; and
- Misleading statements or information about the official, announced date or time of an election.
This will be fun, as it's both a common voter suppression tactic, and a common source of jokes. I bet we see people get banned for joking about this.
