WATCH: Twitter introduces “Birdwatch,” described as “a community-driven approach to addressing misleading information”

Twitter has introduced “Birdwatch” described as “a community-driven approach to addressing misleading information.”

The social media company adds:

We’re looking for people to test this out in the US –– you can add notes with helpful context to Tweets that you think are misleading.

For now, these notes won’t appear directly on Twitter, but anyone in the US can view them at: https://birdwatch.twitter.com (2/3)

We’ll use the notes and your feedback to help shape this program and learn how to reach our goal of letting the Twitter community decide when and what context is added to a Tweet.

Earlier this month, Twitter announced they have permanently banned former President Trump from the platform.
