Donald Trump seems to have regained control of his Twitter feed, after campaign staffers seized it in the final days of his campaign.
In Washington County, Utah, the southwestern corner of the Beehive State, election officials have announced county-wide problems with voting machines. With memory cards not functioning, voters were given paper ballots instead.
But one letter can make a big difference. On Tuesday afternoon, Trump tweeted that Utah officials are warning of voting machine problems across the entire country, rather than simply across one county.
Just out according to @CNN: "Utah officials report voting machine problems across entire country"

CNN producer Brian Stelter was quick to correct Trump’s error.
No. Utah officials reported machine problems across one entire COUNTY, not the entire COUNTRY. https://t.co/6jWMw7qzvQ

Interestingly, the tweet came from Trump’s Android — from which he has apparently sent his angry personal tweets. Tweets marked as coming from Trump’s iPhone have seemingly been staffers’ more reasoned contributions.
Trump has refused to say whether he will ultimately accept the results of an election that he doesn’t win. Earlier Tuesday, he filed a motion in a Nevada court aimed at ultimately challenging early votes in several Hispanic neighborhoods.
