Twitter Warns Nigerian Trump Supporter Over ‘Misleading’ Tweet On Biden’s Victory
For sharing information capable of misleading the general public about the outcome of the U.S. election, Twitter has flagged a tweet by Nigerian former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, and may restrict his account for that purpose.
Fani-Kayode, a devout supporter of President Donald Trump, had taken to the micro-blogging platform to air his opinion on the outcome of the election which saw opposition Democratic Party’s candidate, Joe Biden, defeating the incumbent president and Republican Party flag-bearer.
The ex-minister had claimed that, “… what is unfolding in America is the biggest fraud in electoral history and in the history of democracy and that it will be exposed for what it is at the American Supreme Court.”
Twitter was, however, quick to flag the tweet, saying: “Some or all of the content shared in this tweet is disputed and might be misleading about an election or other civic process.”
The social media website added a link to its policy on civic integrity which warns that, “You may not use Twitter’s services for the purpose of manipulating or interfering in elections or other civic processes…” adding that, “we may label and reduce the visibility of Tweets containing false or misleading information about civic processes in order to provide additional context.”
Meanwhile, Fani-Kayode’s tweet on Biden’s victory reads in full: “You can scream that Joe Biden has won as much as you like. You can laugh at Trump and insult and mock those of us that supported him. You can believe the fake news in the major news networks and accept their narrative that the American presidential election was free and fair.
“You can believe ANYTHING you like but it is just your opinion: it counts for nothing & it changes nothing. I continue to stand with Trump and I believe that he will remain President. Why? Because what is unfolding in America is the biggest fraud in electoral history and in the history of democracy and that it will be exposed for what it is at the American Supreme Court. This is my view and if you like you can insult & mock me for it. Time will tell if I am right or wrong. Biden represents evil to me for the following three reasons.
- He believes in abortion.
- He believes in same-sex marriage.
- He seeks to persecute Israel.
“Love him all you like but I choose to despise him because I consider these three things to be evil, ungodly and against core Christian values.
“Cheer him on and clap for him as much as you choose but I still do not believe that he will ever be sworn in as President. Even if he makes the magic 270 electoral college votes and people call him the “President-elect” it will still be challenged in court and his so-called “victory” will remain subject to the ruling of the Supreme Court and conditional upon its final decision. Until that ruling and decision has been made and announced I would suggest that those who are already dancing in the streets and celebrating Biden’s so-called victory should calm down, have a reality check, smell the coffee, get a grip of themselves and keep the champagne in the fridge. This matter is not over and we still have a long way to go. It is not just a fight for the heart and soul of America but also the destiny of the world.
“It concerns us ALL and affects us ALL even though we are not Americans. I thank God for His grace, mercy and power and for imbuing Donald Trump with faith, courage and strength. These virtues will serve him well in the next few days, weeks and months.
“In the end he will be vindicated and he will prevail and those behind this evil conspiracy will know that we serve a mighty God who rules in the affairs of men!”
