US President Donald Trump’s tweet on mail drop boxes received a public interest notice from Twitter, which said engagements with the tweet will be limited.

Twitter said the tweet made misleading health claims that could potentially dissuade people from participation in voting.

In the tweet, Trump said mail drop boxes are not Covid sanitised.

Users won’t be able to like, reply or retweet the tweet.

Earlier this month, Twitter and Facebook blocked a video shared by accounts linked to Trump for violating policies on coronavirus misinformation, leading the president to say that he was being unfairly censored.
