Shortly before the 2020 election, Twitter began making efforts to mark false information tweeted by verified public officials. Below certain tweets, there’s now an official warning from Twitter that the information may not be fully accurate. They’ve avoided specific terms like “This tweet is false,” preferring to prompt users to “learn more” or warn them that “this claim is disputed.”

Twitter has limited their fact-checking to the election, but other people on Twitter have found a huge number of alternative uses for an instant fact-check on whatever they tweet. The ones below are the absolute best — though that claim, of course, is disputed.
