The Twitter team announced that they are testing new markings for bots on the social network. Now automatic accounts will be marked with a special signature with a link to the developer. About it told service support.
The support stressed that the feature is designed to help users distinguish bots from real people. In addition, “good bots” will have the opportunity to increase their legitimacy and increase the trust of the audience.
“Examples of automated accounts you see on Twitter are bots that help with vaccination appointments or alert you of impending natural disasters. When these accounts are marked as automatic, you better understand their essence when interacting with them “, – it says on the company’s website.
Apparently, the innovation is a continuation of last year’s Twitter demands to increase the transparent work of bots. Then the platform indicated that developers are required to mark automatic accounts accordingly, as well as indicate in the description who created them.
