Twitter is planning on bringing its ‘Read Before You Retweet’ prompt to all users, following several months of testing.
Twitter began testing the feature in June in an effort to help stop the spread of disinformation that social media platforms have increasingly been called to task for. The results of the tests have been positive, with significant upticks in the percentage of people actually looking at the articles they retweet.
Social media companies are looking at multiple ways of reigning in disinformation and radical content. Time will tell if Twitter’s new feature has a long-lasting impact.
