Twitter is reportedly developing multiple “misinformation” labels, including “Get the latest,” “Stay informed,” and “Misleading.”
9to5Mac reports that Twitter is developing a number of misinformation labels. The company recently introduced the “read before you retweet” pop-up which warns users to think twice before sharing content in an attempt to reduce the spread of misinformation.
Now the Masters of the Universe are reportedly working on three new levels of misinformation warning labels including:
“Get the latest” “Stay Informed” Misleading
Researcher Jane Manchun Wong stated that Twitter will prompt one of the three warning labels depending on the tweet content. Wong stated that if she tweets for example: “Snorted 60 grams of dihydrogen monoxide and I’m not feeling so well now,” Twitter will show a label alongside the tweet stating “Get the latest” that will provide information about water (which is dihydrogen monoxide.)
