Another tweet posted by President Trump had been flagged by Twitter in the latest episode of social media interventions to correct some of his remarks.

“NORTH CAROLINA: To make sure your Ballot COUNTS, sign & send it in Early. When polls open, go to your Polling Place to see if it was COUNTED. IF NOT, Vote! Your signed ballot will not count because your vote has been posted. Don’t let them illegally take your vote away from you!” Trump’s tweet read.

Twitter flagged the remark which means that it will still be on the website but can’t be liked, replied, or re-tweeted.

“To protect people on Twitter, we err on the side of limiting the circulation of tweets which advise people to take actions which could be illegal in the context of voting or result in the invalidation of their votes,” Twitter said.

Last month, the social media company flagged another tweet of Trump in which he pointed to mail drop boxes that could be fraudulent.
