Social media platforms have come up with different tools to fight fake information and news. In such a situation, now Twitter has also made an intention to strengthen it with the help of AP and Reuters.
Twitter wants to remove fake information from its platform
Twitter has announced a partnership with Reuters and the Associated Press to help curb the spread of misinformation on its microblogging platform. Speaking with Reuters, a Twitter spokesperson said that the company will collaborate with newswires during breaking news events to add accurate context. It will appear in many places on Twitter and the tweet will also be accompanied by a label and a moment which gives information about the trending topics going on on Twitter.
The company hopes that this partnership will help ensure that the facts hidden behind the veil of lies are available with accurate information. In a blog post detailing the partnership, Twitter said that they will be able to “accelerate our efforts to provide timely, authoritative context across the wide range of global topics and conversations that take place on Twitter every day. “
With the help of this joint effort, the company will give correct information about whatever real-time conversations take place on Twitter. With the help of this, the team will also be very active and will focus on the topic which is currently trending. The partnership will also help strengthen Birdwatch.
Birdwatch is an initiative of Twitter that allows users to report false information to the company. Birdwatch users will now give feedback to Reuters and AP for whatever information they share, and they will tell how much is right and how much is wrong. The initial phase of the rollout will focus on English-language content, though Twitter has said efforts will increase over time and “provide support across languages and timezones globally.”
Let us tell you that fake news and wrong information start trending on social media platforms these days. In such a situation, people do not know what is true and what is false. Many social media platforms have worked on different tools to fight it, while now the name of Twitter has also been added to this list. Companies know how harmful it is to spread misinformation on social media in today’s era.
