Company officials with Twitter and Facebook have appended messages to another post from President Donald Trump Wednesday morning.

Both platforms flagged Trump’s post early Wednesday claiming opponents are trying to steal the election.

The warning from Twitter reads: “Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about an election or other civic process.” Facebook, in its label, wrote, “Final results may be different from the initial vote counts, as ballot counting will continue for days or weeks after polls close.”

A label on a Facebook post reads, “As expected, election results will take longer this year. Millions of people across the US voted by mail, and mail ballots take longer to count.”

Early Wednesday, Facebook began alerting users that ballots are still being counted, after President Donald Trump falsely claimed that he had won the presidential election. The messages appear at the top of the feeds for both Instagram and Facebook.\
