As Twitter increases it’s fact-checking and labeling of posts across its platform, some users have begun mocking the site via parody posts examples. The fake tweets are part of a growing backlash against Twitter censorship that impacts not only President Donald Trump, but the broader conservative movement.
Breitbart News recently reported that Twitter stated this week that it put labels on 300,000 user posts from October 27 to November 11 for violating rules related to election misinformation. Twitter also implemented a retweet feature that required users to add their own comments before retweeting a post on the platform.
Between election day and Friday of this week, Twitter labeled around 34 percent of President Trump’s tweets and retweets as “disputed.” Breitbart News has reported extensively on this, noting recently that 25 of President Trump’s posts across Twitter and Facebook were labeled or disputed within 24 hours.
Users were quick to ridicule Twitter by creating fake screenshots of fake fact-checks, implying that Twitter was being overly harsh in its labeling and questioning things that were clearly true.

In another example making the rounds, Twitter fact checks a Trojan questioning the Greeks’ gift of a wooden horse:
