Online disinformation is a major threat to our democracy.
In the 2016 and 2020 elections, voters had to wade through a flood of online disinformation. Sent anonymously or from fake profiles, partisan operatives and foreign intelligence invested millions in discouraging, confusing, or frustrating voters out of exercising their rights.
It ranges from the seemingly harmless -- a joke tweet telling supporters of one party to vote on Wednesday instead of Tuesday -- to actively malicious -- targeting voters of color in a contested election to try and get them to stay home.
Throughout the 2020 election cycle, sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram didn’t do nearly enough to stop the spread of disinformation on their own platforms. That’s where you come in.
IT’S UP TO US TO WATCH FOR ELECTION DISINFORMATION, EXPOSE IT, AND GET IT TAKEN DOWN SO IT CAN’T DISTORT OUR DEMOCRACY.
