Twitter is developing new feature called Birdwatch to address misinformation: All you need to know


Team Udayavani, Oct 4, 2020, 3:10 PM IST

Twitter’s new experimental tool called Birdwatch is a part of the platform’s efforts to expand its arsenal of weapons against misinformation online.

According to Tech Crunch, tweets can be added to ‘Birdwatch’ from the tweet’s drop-down menu, where other blocking and reporting tools are available. A small binoculars icon will appear on tweets published to the Twitter Timeline. When the icon is clicked, users will be directed to a screen where they can view the tweet’s history of notes.

The report further states that based on screenshots of Birdwatch unearthed through reverse engineering techniques, a new tab called ‘Birdwatch Notes’ will be added to Twitter’s sidebar navigation.

It is said that the feature was first uncovered in early stages of its development by reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong, who found the system through Twitter’s website.
