Not content with its current level of censorship, Twitter is upping its game once again, announcing a new policy where users will be issued with a warning if they ‘like’ a tweet that has been deemed to contain ‘misinformation’ by the tech overlords.
The platform unveiled the change Monday, citing the election and COVID-19 as justification.
“Giving context on why a labeled Tweet is misleading under our election, COVID-19, and synthetic and manipulated media rules is vital,” a post read.
Twitter stated that its
censorship “prompts” have “helped decrease Quote Tweets of misleading information by 29%.”
