Twitter working on warning users trying to like misleading posts: Report


Team Udayavani, Nov 24, 2020, 7:11 PM IST

Twitter is working on a feature that would show users a ‘misleading information’ label when they try liking a tweet that has been labelled as misinformation.

The feature was discovered by reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong in the Twitter app code. She added that the feature wouldn’t stop a user’s ability to like the tweet.

According to Tech Crunch, This new feature would fall in line with other measures Twitter has been taking to slow the spread of misinformation on its service, including a recent change to how retweets work.

On October 20, 2020, Twitter began to prompt anyone who goes to retweet something to share a quote tweet instead.

Twitter also rolled out a series of new policies ahead of Election Day in the U.S., to further guide its handling of misleading tweets.
