Twitter: Collaborates with Reuters and the Associated Press to tackle fake news

So far, Twitter has a special team that takes over when “fights” break out between users over controversial issues.

Twitter has announced that it will work with two major news agencies, Reuters and the Associated Press (AP), to reduce misinformation on its platform by some users, especially in the midst of a pandemic.

This is the first time Twitter has officially partnered with news organizations to promote reliable information and news among its users.

Earlier this year, Twitter launched the new Birdwatch system, which allows volunteer users to tag inaccurate tweets.

Twitter’s goal is to quickly – with the help of agencies – provide accurate and reliable information, especially on “facts in question”.

Instead of waiting for something fake to go “viral”, that is, to spread like a virus on its platform among users, Twitter hopes to be able to prevent such a development.

Both Reuters and AP are also working with Facebook to check the reliability of their posts.
