Twitter is expanding the list of countries whose residents can report disinformation

The social network Twitter has announced that it will extend the scope of one of the required functions to new countries. The feature to report tweets containing misinformation will soon be available in several additional regions around the world.

In August last year, the company unveiled a pilot where users could complain about misinformation. Platform users from the United States, Australia and South Korea participated. The feature will now also be available in Brazil, Spain and the Philippines.

According to the social network itself, since the feature was first announced on Twitter, about 3 million applications have been received from people who have taken the opportunity to flag tweets that they believe violate company policies.

It is known that last year the social platform added an even more interesting “pilot” feature of Birdwatch, which allows project participants not only to report disinformation, but also to add text comments and additional “context” to complaints. At the same time, notes are stored on a separate website and are currently only available to users from the United States.
