Twitter’s fight against misinformation has previously seen this ban the strongest man in the world. However, with deception and trust being an ongoing issue, it has expanded labels rolled it during the pandemic. You’ll immediately find three new variations of warning labels at the bottom of the relevant tweets, all of which provide more context to help debunk hoaxes or bust jargon. The new alerts include “Get the latest,” “Stay Informed” and “Trick,” complete with companion “find out more” links. If they are similar to the COVID-19 labels, they should lead to external sites or a curated Twitter Moment with a lot of information on the topic already available. Once again, the development side was spotted by social media oracle, Jane Manchun Wong-who recently unearthed the Twitter Blue subscription service.

About the endless struggle to get rid of misinformation, Twitter has been used in the past PSAs during the election to prevent lies about voting and consequences. Its campaign later saw President Donald Trump headless at the time, with its account permanently banned as part of a divisive move that encouraged outcry from his supporters and advocates for free to speak.
In January, Twitter announced Birdwatch: a form factor that provides a small set of user tools to provide authentic reviews for tweets. Initially, the notes would only be available on a dedicated site, but Twitter said it plans to integrate them into its platform when a broad and diverse understanding is reached.
