Twitter Bringing Back Election Labels

Twitter Bringing Back Election Labels

Twitter has announced that they’re bringing back their election labels, a feature they first used during the 2018 midterm elections.

The labels will appear on the accounts of anyone who is running for the US Senate, US House of Representatives or Governor in 2020. They will include the office a person is running for and which state/district they are running in.

Labels appear on a candidate’s Twitter account once they officially qualify. This happens on a rolling basis since states have different election and caucus dates. In order to get all of this information, Twitter has partnered with the civic nonprofit organization Ballotpedia. The election label will include a ballot box icon and will appear on both the candidate’s profile and every tweet they post.
