The new rules would flag Trump’s tweets if he claims an early victory.

Twitter is expanding its policies against voter suppression ahead of the 2020 election, saying it will take down or label more types of misleading election claims, such as falsely claiming a premature victory while results are still being tallied. While social media companies make changes to their misinformation policies all the time, its notable that Twitter is making this change ahead of what could be a contested election, with a record number of people voting by mail due to the pandemic, and with President Trump essentially disputing the elections results before people have even started voting. In the past few months, Trump has repeatedly tweeted false claims about voting, including the unsubstantiated assertion that mail-in ballots will lead to widespread voter fraud. He has also en...

Radio Flyer’s My First Model Y is a mini Tesla for kids four years old and younger.

A few years ago Radio Flyer teamed up with Tesla to create a kids’ version of the Tesla Model S. That drivable mini electric sedan packs a lithium-ion battery and costs $500. Now, the companies are releasing a Tesla Model Y for kids. This mini whip is a ride-on, so kids will have to scoot it themselves (there’s no electrification here), but it costs just $100. The company says kids as young as one and a half can ride the Tesla toy, dubbed “My First Model Y.” Most will outgrow it by the time they’re about four years old, when they might graduate to the Tesla Model S For Kids. My First Model Y comes with an ergonomic seat, functioning horn and “authentic” Model Y details.
