U.S. adults who heard about Trump's Twitter content warning 2020

According to a June 2020 survey, approximately 77 percent of adults in the United States had either heard a lot or at least a little about Twitter placing a warning on one of Donald Trump's tweets. On May 29th, the social media platform placed a warning label on one of the President's tweets regarding the protesters in Minneapolis, stating that the tweet glorified violence. This was the first time that a tweet of a public figure has been labelled as such. Trump's Twitter usage has frequently incited debate and an August 2018 survey found that 61 percent of U.S. adults believed that Trump's Twitter usage was inappropriate as POTUS.
