Twitter's fact-checking policy seems to be selective on the types of misinformation it deems misleading or false.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey defended the platform's policy following backlash after a fact check placed on two of President Donald Trump’s tweets this week.

Dorsey said:

"We’ll continue to point out incorrect or disputed information about elections globally. And we will admit to and own any mistakes we make.”

But the question remains if that policy extended to Democrats like Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), who falsely claimed President Donald Trump colluded with Russia, and his tweets still remain intact with no warning despite being disproven a year ago.

Below are few of Schiff's tweets which remain unaltered:

Schiff had famously misled the media for years about whether there was, in fact, evidence of “Russian collusion."

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report stated:

“The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”

Dorsey argued that Twitter's decision to place warnings on tweets does not make the platform an “arbiter of truth."

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump warned social media companies of closure following Twitter's fact check.

Trump noted that many conservatives feel censored by social media platforms, as the tech giants' most high profile censorship attack threatens to expose election meddling.

Trump added that Republicans would consider federal regulations and even closing down platforms if such censorship continues.
