Twitter adding a new feature where users will be asked to read the tweet before tweeting it.

Twitter has been one of the most used microblogging sites in India and has also been one of the primary sources of news through many news agencies. However, this has also been one of its bigger problems as Twitter has seen a lot of fake news tweets in the last few months. These fake tweets not only make the interaction on the platform worse but also passes on false information before Twitter can detect it. In order to stop the number of fake tweets on the platform, Twitter will soon launch a new prompt on Android, where it asks the user to read the twitter again before they decide to tweet it finally. 

Twitter has already done the experiment on a small group of people where the results were very positive. Twitter confirmed that some users who have not reviewed their tweets will slowly make it a habit as it will be prompted by the system. They also said that “To help promote informed discussion, we’re testing a new prompt on Android –– when you Retweet an article that you haven’t opened on Twitter, we may ask if you’d like to open it first make it a habit of using it.

As per the head of Twitter, fake news can often go viral very easily, therefore not checking the news properly will lead to more false communication. Twitter is also working on a new technological platform which is based on WhatsApp, where people will not be able to send unlimited messages or tweets and there will be a daily limit to it.
