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.

Bold red and orange labels highlighting misinformation shared by politicians and other public figures is one way Twitter link is considering to tackle fake news.

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.”
