Twitter is developing three new “misinformation” labels

Twitter is about to take more steps to deal with the so-called misinformation contained within tweets on its website.

Breitbart reports that Twitter is getting ready to release three new misinformation warning labels. 

What are they?

9to5Mac first reported on these expected misinformation labels, sharing information obtained by researcher Jane Manchun Wong.

According to Wong, the three labels that Twitter is expected to release are “Get the latest,” “Stay informed,” and “Misleading.” These labels may or may not be attached to a Tweet depending on the content of the message.

According to Wong, the “Get the latest” label would get attached to a tweet like this one: “Snorted 60 grams of dihydrogen monoxide and I’m not feeling so well now.” The “Get the latest” label would provide more information about “dihydrogen monoxide,” which, of course, is water.

The “Stay informed” label would be attached, according to Wong,” to this kind of tweet: “In 12 hours, darkness will ascend in parts of the world. Stay tuned.” Here, the “Stay informed” label would indicate that the message was referring to timezones, rather than the end of the world.

And, finally, Wong says that the “Misleading” label would be attached to a tweet like this one: “We eat. Turtles eat. Therefore we are turtles.” Here, the “Misleading” label would be attached because this is a logical fallacy.

Background

This is Twitter’s latest attempt to combat “misinformation” on its website. Similar social media sites, such as Facebook, have taken similar steps.

The biggest step that Twitter ever took in this direction, of course, was banning former President Donald Trump from its website following the January 6th Capitol riot. The outlet claimed that this was necessary to prevent further violence.

We also saw how Twitter attached various labels to certain tweets that questioned the results of the 2020 presidential election.

More recently, Twitter introduced the “read before you retweet” label. This label attempts to stop the spread of misinformation by warning users that the content that they are about to retweet may be misinformation.

Twitter has yet to reveal when the three newest misinformation labels will be added to its site.
