Twitter is partnering with Reuters and The Associated Press (AP) to help provide more context to tweets. Will this make the social media website less of a misinformation cesspool? Probably not, but every little bit helps.
Announced in a blog post on Monday, Twitter’s Curation team will collaborate with both news organisations (separately) to swiftly provide credible context to tweets, hoping to quash misinformation before it spirals out of control. It is the first time Twitter has formally worked with news outlets for this purpose.
