As November is approaching, new arrangements for the proper and secure system have been making rounds on social media. The ballot boxes have now been replaced with mail-in ballots to ensure maximum protection and safety in this epidemic. President Trump, who is known widely for making public tweets over several political as well as national affairs, took a dig at these new revelations and declared them a "disaster" for being "not Covid sanitized "in his Tweet. This tweet by President Trump did not only push the authorities to immediately look into the matter as it concerns human safety, but it also became a matter of attention for the platform of Twitter itself as it happened to violate one of its Civic Integrity policies.

Twitter concurs to violation of Civic Integrity policies
According to this policy, the statement made by President Trump fell into the category of "misleading claims" that could refrain people from taking part in such an important campaign for the country. In response, Twitter made some adjustments to the engagements of this Tweet and enabled the option of comment for the public while disabling all the other options because despite breaching only one Civic policy, this Tweet did inflict public health interest.
According to many sources, the Department of Disease Control and Prevention did not seem to concur with the objections made my president Trump as the research has clearly stated that the virus is most likely to transmit from one human to another when they are near and no otherwise.
Trump decides to sign an executive order for content protection
However, this is not the first time Twitter aimed at president Trump for posting content that reciprocated misleading claims. The response of Twitter led the president to, later on, sign an executive order to safeguard his social media content from platforms that can moderate or flag user-created content for breaching issues.
