Twitter Tests Feature Aimed To Limit Sharing On Unread Articles
TWITTER – Twitter announced that it was testing a new feature which aims to limit the sharing of articles by users who haven’t read them.
The said feature, according to Philippine Star, asks users whether they have read an article before they retweet it. It aims to reduce the spread of unverified information.
“Sharing an article can spark conversation, so you may want to read it before you tweet it,”
This was a tweet from Twitter Support, who said that they are testing this on Android in order to promote informed discussion.
The support team noted that they wanted to test a way to enhance the health of a conversation as it gets started. They, however, said that they will always have the choice to go ahead with the sharing.
Based on the report, the social media giant decided to limit the reach of some comments by USA President Donald Trump last month due to the reason that they were misleading and some were a violation of platform rules since they promote violence.
Trump responded angrily and signed an executive order which could strip away some legal liability protections of social media companies. It is, however, unclear if this can be implemented.
