Twitter to direct users to credible info before they share labelled posts


Team Udayavani, Oct 10, 2020, 7:13 PM IST

Twitter users will be shown a prompt pointing them to credible information before they retweet posts with misleading information label, starting next week.

Twitter added, starting October 20, it will bring new features till at least the end of US elections, globally, and assess their necessity. This will include users being encouraged to quote tweets instead of simply retweeting.

Twitter says it has labeled thousands of misleading posts, though most attention has been on the labels applied to tweets by U.S. President Donald Trump. Twitter also said it would label tweets that falsely claim a win for any candidate.

It will also stop surfacing trending topics without added context, and will stop people seeing “liked by” recommendations from people they do not know in their timeline.
