Twitter is taking action against the spread of misinformation regarding the COVID-19 vaccine, with new labels for tweets that will warn against false information and claims. The platform’s latest enforcement system will also suspend, and even permanently ban, repeat offenders.

 

Any time a Twitter user tries to share a tweet whose content is identified as controversial regarding the COVID-19 vaccine, they will be prompted to 'Find out more' from Twitter’s COVID-19 Information Center.

 


Twitter explained that the labels will be initially applied by its team members when they determine content that violates Twitter’s policy. These tests will be then used for further informing and advancing the platform’s automated tools, so it can identify and label similar content across its service.


“Our goal is to eventually use both automated and human review to address content that violates our COVID-19 vaccine misinformation rules," said Twitter.

Amazon’s new app icon that made its first appearance back in January, has started to look a little different. The icon previously appeared to show a tape that looked like a toothbrush-style moustache, which has now changed.


 

The toothbrush-style moustache became a popular trend after being famously associated with comedian Charlie Chaplin and later with Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.

 

Amazon changed the initial look of its app icon after receiving feedback from its customers. “Amazon is always exploring new ways to delight our customers. We designed the new icon to spark anticipation, excitement, and joy when customers start their shopping journey on their phone, just as they do when they see our boxes on their doorstep,” said an Amazon spokesperson about the recent tweak to the app icon’s design.

When Twitter first launched its version of Stories called Fleets, the feature was simple with no additional tools or effects, unlike what Instagram or Snapchat offer with Stories. However, Twitter recently decided to add a new option to Fleets called Twemoji stickers, available to users in Japan only for now.

 

In the Fleets composer, a new stickers tray can be found by tapping on the smiley face icon. You can then use the search option to look for the sticker of your choice to add to your photo or video. With the Twemoji stickers, you can express your feelings or mood.

 

It looks like Twitter would consider bringing more of such visual tools to Fleets in order to expand the feature, which will help increase user engagement. Since other social platforms have already enhanced their Stories feature, it is likely that Twitter would do the same.

Why should Vending Machines be in schools?

Installing vending machines in schools is a great way for convenient and quick snacking; moreover, it is also defined as an inexpensive way of munching. Back in July 2014, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) set some standards for the schools, which advised all the schools in the country to fulfill the requirements and follow the guidelines of “Smart Snacks in Schools.” According to the new standards, schools were to find innovative ways to stick to the new standards while keeping up with the profit.

As per the USDA standards, the snacks sold in school must be not more than 200 calories, have no grams of trans fat, not be more than 35 percent of saturated fats, and must have nutritional value rather than empty calories.
