Reporters at the online news site Insider have been told to take a week off from tweeting at work and to keep TweetDeck off their computer screens. The idea of disengaging is to kick away a crutch for the journalists and escape from the echo chamber, said Julie Zeveloff West, Insider's editor-in-chief for the U.S.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - Twitter has placed a warning on two of President Donald Trump's tweets that potentially encourage US citizens to vote twice in the November election, the company said in a statement on Thursday.
"We placed a public interest notice on two Tweets in this thread for violating our Civic Integrity Policy, specifically for encouraging people to potentially vote twice", the company statement said regarding Trump's tweets.

Twitter said Trump's tweets may be misleading because of the various voting laws in each US state, especially where voting twice may be illegal.

The company statement said Twitter users will be able to "Quote" Trump's tweets, but will not be able to "Like, Reply, or Retweet" them.

Earlier in the day, Trump tweeted that US citizens should submit a mail-in ballot and then on Election Day head to the polls to ensure their vote is counted.
