‘Welcome to Elon Musk’s Twitter’: White House deletes tweet after context added – Read Full Details!

On Wednesday, the White House deleted a tweet about US Pensioners receiving the “biggest rise in social security checks” for a decade. Twitter had attached a note from users calling attention to the lack of context.

The White House tweeted that the President Biden’s leadership had resulted in the largest benefit increase in 10 years for senior citizens.

Users claimed that the increase was due to an annual cost-of-living adjustment that was triggered by high inflation. This mechanism has been in place since 1972.

“Seniors will see a significant increase in Social Security benefits due to the annual cost-of-living adjustment. This is based upon the inflation rate. The note stated that President Nixon signed automatic benefit adjustments linked to the Consumer Price Index into law in 1972.

Karine Jean-Pierre, White House Press Secretary, stated that the tweet was deleted due to “it didn’t have that context”, according to AFP.

This note was part Twitter’s Birdwatch program. It adds comments to relevant posts if enough people from a variety of opinions find them “helpful.”

Elon Musk, tech billionaire and Twitter owner, has praised the community notes feature, saying that the goal is to make Twitter “the most accurate source for information on Earth without regard to political affiliation.”

Spike Cohen, the Libertarian Party nominee for the US vice presidency in 2020, tweeted that the White House had deleted the tweet.

Musk responded, “The system works.”

According to several US media reports, Musk plans to overhaul the social media giant, including making it a safe haven for free speech. Bloomberg reported that people familiar with the matter said that they are unable at the moment to penalize or alter accounts that violate rules regarding misleading information and offensive posts.

It stated that there are exceptions to this rule, and that the most serious violations that could cause real-world harm are handled by hand.
