Twitter has been the most active for the past few months and has constantly released new updates in order to ensure the safety of accounts and prevent the spread of fake information. Now that the US presidential elections are almost a week away, the tech giant is adding an anti-misinformation banner. Every US-based user will see the banner on their timelines. Furthermore, the banner will also pop up if anyone searches for election-related information.
The company said that the purpose of these pop-ups is to provide authentic information regarding topics that are likely to get changed into false information. There are two banners out of which one serves the purpose to assure the users that the safest mode of election is through an e-mail whereas, the other pop up makes it clear to the users that election results take some time to be announced. Both the pop-ups are expected to get updated by the company regularly.
Twitter also warns all the users about unconfirmed and false victory claims. The company has already launched updates where every fake information gets a label attached to it so that every other user knows it.
Just like Twitter, Facebook has also made several steps to safeguard the US elections and make the platform as much help as possible for the citizens. A Twitter spokesperson said that the users could blindly trust and rely on the platform for every type of information related to the elections as they promise to provide the most authentic piece of guidance.
