A video shared on Twitter by US President Donald Trump was today labeled “manipulating the media.” The video, retweeted by Trump, shows a white child chasing a black child down the street with the caption: “Terrified white kid escapes racist boy.” (Terrified todler runs from racist baby) ” the video shows the video, which was produced by CNN. But there’s a typo in the caption, “toddler” (a toddler) written as “todler.”
The video then shows the two children chasing the scene before it is “pictured.” It turned out that the two children were actually friends, and they ran to meet and hug each other, then went on to catch up and play. The video ends with the message: “America is not the problem, fake news is.” “
Originally, Trump retweeted the video to reveal how CNN concocted fake news. After the video was retweeted, it was viewed more than 10 million times and more than 150,000 retweeted. Ironically, the video that Trump retweeted was actually tampered with in a VIDEO from CNN in September 2019.
Twitter later labeled Mr. Trump’s tweet a “manipulation media.” Twitter explained that deceptive media, including video, audio and images, could be tagged after tampering or forgery.
Twitter also said users are not allowed to share deceptively modified media content on Twitter, which could pose a threat to personal safety or other serious harm. In response to Trump’s tweet, the parents of the two children in the video also expressed shock.
This is at least the third time Twitter has “tagged” Trump’s tweets. On May 26, Twitter first took action against Mr. Trump, labelling a series of tweets that should be “fact-checked.”
Then, Mr. Trump issued an executive order on social networking sites that did not allow them to manually pick what people could see or say. In addition, these social networking sites are responsible for the content they publish. But on May 29, Twitter labeled one of Trump’s tweets “glorifiviolence.”
