US President Joe Biden was fact checked by Twitter’s ‘Community Notes’ again, but this tweet hasn’t been deleted yet.

Biden gets fact checked by Twitter – again

Twitter’s ‘Community Notes’ are assigned to tweets determined by the social media company to be lacking relevant context, if not outright false.

On Tuesday, Biden tweeted that “America is not a deadbeat nation. We have never, ever failed to pay our debt.” 

Twitter then added a community note under Biden’s tweet that reads “The United States has defaulted on its debts multiple times.”


Twitter included multiple sources to justify its claim. 

The ripple effects of Elon Musk taking over Twitter have politicians needing to be extra careful when tweeting. 

In November, The White House’s Twitter account deleted a tweet that got tagged with a Community Note to avoid the embarrassment. The tweet said Americans are “getting the biggest increase in their Social Security checks in 10 years through President Biden’s leadership.”

But since the social security checks are adjusted according to cost-of-living assessments, rather than because of Biden’s leadership, a Twitter admin added a note with said “context” under the tweet.

Shortly thereafter, the Biden admin deleted the tweet.

Fact checks have become regular occurrences on Twitter in recent years, but traditionally, they’re against right-leaning thinkers. 

Just before Musk took over Twitter, Dr. Peter McCullough, who had over 500,000 followers on Twitter, was suspended for violating the platform’s terms and services agreement for posting concerns about the COVID vaccines. Musk has since reinstated McCullough, along with several others.

Last month, US President Joe Biden accidentally called Canada “China” in the House of Commons, just one day after Canadian MPs voted in favour of a public inquiry to find out just how much the Chinese Communist Party runs Canada.

“So today, I applaud China for stepping up — I apologize, Canada!” Biden said.
