Social Media App Twitter to unveil new 'Fake News' feature for users across the World
ISLAMABAD - Social Media App Twitter to unveil new 'Fake News' feature for users across the World.
A design mock-up obtained by NBC News shows how verified fact-checkers and journalists can highlight incorrect tweets directly below the original post.
There also appears to be a way for others to add their feedback, with a Participate button.
Misinformation was under the spotlight during the 2019 general election and continues to be a concern as the US prepares for the presidential election later this year.
Offending material is described as harmfully misleading in a tab underneath, which reads: “Twitter community reports have identified this tweet as violating the community policy on harmfully misleading information.
“This tweet’s visibility will be reduced.”
