Legit.ng earlier reported that Facebook's CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, has criticised Twitter for fact-checking some tweets posted by the president of the United States, Donald Trump.
Twitter had tagged two of President Trump’s tweets about mail-in voting with fact-check links. Forbes reports that Zuckerberg, however, berated Twitter, saying private companies “shouldn't be the arbiter of truth.”
Though Facebook takes down ads that discourage people from voting, it was gathered thay that a Facebook spokesperson said Trump’s tweets, which were also posted as Facebook statuses, did not violate its rules, which “focus on misrepresentations that would interfere with the vote.”

Recall that President Trump on Wednesday, May 27, threatened to close down the micro-blogging site, Twitter and other social media platforms.
This threat from President Trump came after he was fact-checked by Twitter following his comment on Tuesday, May 26, that mail-in ballots could encourage fraudulent activities.
Angered by the site's position that his tweet lacked evidence to prove this, Trump asked social media platforms to clear up their act immediately.
The US president claimed that there is a general feeling in the Republican party that social media is out to silence the voices of conservatives.
