a long time to act on these types of tweets. there are 2 areas where twitter has said specifically they would be more aggressive one of those is misinformation around the virus so we've seen them take action against the brazilian president over that and then also on election misinformation so this is one of the 2 areas where they said they'd be more aggressive that said they have never taken action in 3 and a half years of presidential tweets and there have been plenty that have been misleading this is the 1st time that they've labeled it so it's still a major moment i think there's been a lot of pressure but initially if you remember in 201617188 lot of the focus was on needed in authentic behavior so outside of the u.s. influences on election so whether it was russia or china or whomever it was other countries using bots attempting to interfere the more recent issue has to do with misinformation but intentional by individuals so it's not you know authentic
11:22 am
