After getting 270 electoral votes, Joe Biden is certain to win the 2020 United States presidential election. However, the results of the election turned out to highlight mark zuckerberg’s trending figure on Twitter.

A wide range of comments on Twitter allege that the Facebook boss was influential in the election of Joe Biden as the 46th US president.

As it is known, Mark Zuckerberg has previously denied lobbying issues from Donald Trump about political ads on Facebook. This came to a close when the Facebook CEO met and had a private dinner for the first time with Donald Trump.

Sunday (8/11),Facebook is facing criticism for its stance on political ads on Facebook that do not fact-check politicians in those political ads or to remove false information from them.

Previously, Mark Zuckerberg had confirmed that facebook would take precautions ahead of the 2020 US presidential election.

Facebook will take steps such as helping citizens to channel their voting rights, providing accurate information about presidential elections, banning political ads a week before the election to blocking ads aimed at de-legitimizing the outcome of the 2020 U.S. presidential election.

Other social media platforms such as Twitter have also banned political ads, as has YouTube which has removed hundreds of political ads and its platforms.

Since the U.S. presidential election on Monday, Twitter has updated its systems to prevent misinformation related to the 2020 U.S. Presidential election. In fact, social media was reluctant to drown out the wrong tweets about the US election.

Later, Donald Trump’s tweets deemed to have given misleading news about the 2020 US presidential election were blocked by Twitter. Twitter first screened Trump’s tweets on November 4, 2015, ingesting the practice of election vote theft.

Twitter’s policy was apparently not heeded by Trump, who continued to post his tweets on his personal account until Thursday, November 6, United States time. Twitter again labeled Trump’s tweet the wrong one.
