Twitter - Misleading Information in Tweets

Post by Accrete »

There can be misleading information spread on any social network. Twitter has taken action to curtail this problem on their site:
In serving the public conversation, our goal is to make it easy to find credible information on Twitter and to limit the spread of potentially harmful and misleading content. Starting today, we’re introducing new labels and warning messages that will provide additional context and information on some Tweets containing disputed or misleading information related to COVID-19.

In March, we broadened our policy guidance to address content that goes directly against guidance on COVID-19 from authoritative sources of global and local public health information. Moving forward, we may use these labels and warning messages to provide additional explanations or clarifications in situations where the risks of harm associated with a Tweet are less severe but where people may still be confused or misled by the content. This will make it easier to find facts and make informed decisions about what people see on Twitter...

...These labels will link to a Twitter-curated page or external trusted source containing additional information on the claims made within the Tweet...
Announcement continued: Updating our Approach to Misleading Information
11 May 2020

Do you think this will be helpful? Have you seen these labels? (besides on President Trump's tweets)
Yours truly,

I have not but I'm rarely there.

I do think any steps social media takes to curtail fake news or mis-leading info is a positive one.
Reducing my online presence to do some other things.
