March 25 (Reuters) – Messaging application Telegram on Friday signed an arrangement to be a part of a method made by Brazil’s Electoral Court to combat misinformation ahead of the country’s presidential election in Oct, the courtroom mentioned on its web-site.
Telegram was the only remaining key messaging and social network application that had not yet shut a partnership with the courtroom.
“The reason of the partnership is to combat faux written content connected to the Electoral Justice, the electronic voting procedure, the electoral system in its unique phases and the actors concerned in it,” claimed the court’s take note.
On Thursday, Telegram’s community agent Alan Campos Elias Thomaz said he would supply the proposal to the firm’s executives, incorporating that the application is dedicated to preventing “faux news.”
The application was suspended by Brazil’s Supreme Courtroom last week for non-compliance, but the measure was revoked on Sunday.
