Twitter can first categorize Tweets based on your fault

Over the years, Twitter has been one of many social media companies that have worked hard to prevent misinformation from being posted on its platform.

According to app researcher Jane Manchun Wong, her latest attempt appears to have been a hierarchical warning naming system that changes based on the level of the bug.

There are currently three types of misinformation warning signs: the "Got Latest" tag, the "Stay Informed" tag, and the "Cheat" tag.

The accuracy of the tweet determines whether the Twitter system is managing any of these three tags, and each tag contains requests to refer users to different information.

These pages appear to contain links to Twitter pages or censored external sources. The same applies to Twitter and the incorrect naming of the Coronavirus during the US presidential election.

This feature can help reduce the spread of misinformation, or at least provide vital background information about issues that might be too accurate to contain 280 characters.

Twitter and error messages:

As social platforms have suppressed the voices of moderate Palestinians during the Israeli conflict in recent weeks, this feature has raised concerns about censorship.

The Twitter algorithm has already failed. Incorrect information can have lasting effects.

It is not clear when this feature will be activated. Also, it is not known whether users who post incorrect information regularly will suffer any consequences.

Although all this is still technically uncertain. However, researchers have accurately anticipated several developments on Twitter in the past few months. Including starting the tip jar function and restarting the general review program.

Between fighting potentially harmful misinformation about the Coronavirus and combating the spread of the conspiracy surrounding the 2020 presidential election, social media companies have introduced a number of new features to help curb the spread of fake news.

Around the same time last year, Twitter added a reminder to remind you that you didn't read the post before retweeting it.

In January, Twitter launched Birdwatch, a crowdsourcing feature that provides a tool for reviewing Tweets for a small group of users from different policy domains.

Initially, the annotations were only visible on the dedicated site. But Twitter said that once it reached a broad and diverse consensus, it plans to incorporate it into its platform.
