Twitter is stepping up its fight against misinformation and voter manipulation. In a blog post, Twitter announced a new reporting feature for tweets that attempt to spread false information about the electoral process. The new feature appears as a default option when a user elects to report a tweet.
When reporting a tweet, a user can simply select the “it’s misleading about voting” option, then let Twitter know how the tweet is trying to manipulate voters. This update looks to streamline the process, making the content easier to report, and getting it in front of the right eyes on the Twitter Safety team.
The company says this new feature will roll out first in India on April 25, followed by the EU on April 29, just in time for elections. Twitter plans to continue to roll out this feature globally throughout the year.
