Twitter has announced that it plans to flag misleading tweets about the war in Ukraine from official accounts. The platform is trying to regulate a new wave of disinformation about the war in Ukraine, which are often spread from official government resources. The report was brought by the BBC portal.

 

Twitter will focus on high-follower profiles, such as government media or official government accounts. However, it will not block users who will distribute hoaxes. So far, they have limited content from more than 300 Russian government accounts, including the account of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

You will not be able to like or share the tweets

 

In practice, Twitter users will need to click on the alert before they can read the post. However, they will not be able to like, tweet or share it. At the same time, Twitter adjusts the search function and the "explore" section so that misleading tweets receive as little attention as possible.

 

 

 

 

"Although this first step focuses only on the war in Ukraine, we are already planning to focus on further crises," wrote Yoel Roth, head of Twitter security team.

 

 

Elon Musk criticised Twitter's content moderation policy. He also recently announced that when he becomes the official owner of Twitter, he will renew the account of US President Donald Trump. The platform blocked the account due to hateful and misleading statements. The BBC portal mentions, that it is not yet clear how Musk will react to Twitter's new content moderation efforts.
