President Donald Trump ripped into Twitter on Thursday while again trying to make the case against mail-in ballots.

His comments came in a tweet where he singled out @yoyoel (Yoel Roth, head of site integrity at Twitter.) The president wrote: “So ridiculous to see Twitter trying to make the case that Mail-In Ballots are not subject to FRAUD. How stupid, there are examples, & cases, all over the place. Our election process will become badly tainted & a laughingstock all over the World. Tell that to your hater @yoyoel.”

On Tuesday, Twitter had added fact-check labels on two of Trump's tweets over concerns that the statements he had made about voter fraud and mail-in ballots were not accurate.

While it unclear whether Roth had any direct role in flagging Trump's tweets, the site integrity team he runs, according to his LinkedIn page, is responsible for "developing and enforcing Twitter's rules on platform manipulation, spam, and API access, as well as Twitter's investigation and attribution efforts related to state-backed information operations."

Meanwhile, Trump is expected to order a review of a law that has long protected internet companies, including Twitter and Facebook, an extraordinary attempt to intervene in the media that experts said was unlikely to survive legal scrutiny.
