Ukraine war: Twitter unveils new policy to combat ‘crisis misinformation’
Euronews says Twitter has introduced a new policy to crack down on online misinformation about the war in Ukraine and other humanitarian crises.
The social media platform will no longer recommend and amplify tweets that have been identified as false. Users will also be unable to like, retweet or share content that violates the new “crisis misinformation” rules.
The change is part of a broader effort to promote accurate information during times of conflict or crisis, following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
The policy will focus on potentially dangerous misinformation about alleged war crimes, conflict narratives, “the use of weapons,” and humanitarian operations.
