washington post trump tweet checker plugin
On Friday, the Washington Post introduced a Chrome plugin that will automatically display commentary next to Donald Trump’s tweets. Spearheaded by the Post’s politics team at The Fix, the plugin provides context and fact-checking of, for example, Trump’s claims that millions of people voted illegally in the November election.

The Post has retroactively fact-checked Trump’s recent tweets, and they say they’ll continue adding commentary to new tweets in something close to real time.

Of course, while it might be convenient for those critical of Trump, the plugin is inherently an exercise in preaching to the choir—it’s unlikely that anyone supportive of Trump is going to go to the trouble of installing a Chrome plugin that promises to undermine him.
