Twitter Preparing To Tackle Misinformation With Birdwatch Ahead Of US Midterms — But Is It Missing A Beat Globally? - Twitter (NYSE:TWTR)


Jane Manchun Wong, a security researcher, highlighted how false narratives are spread on Twitter Inc. TWTR, saying that the social media platform “is still a great place to spread misinformation” and target audiences outside the U.S.

What Happened: Wong tweeted about the geographical limitations of Birdwatch, Twitter’s community-driven program that was launched to reduce the spread of misinformation on the platform. The feature enables users to identify information in tweets they believe are misleading and write notes that provide additional context. 

Wong shared a screenshot along with her tweet.
