Twitter's 'read before sharing' test is spreading to iOS
Do you really want to retweet that?
Ok, we expanded a test to some people on iOS today. If we prompt you will you read an article before you just RT? Doesn't matter what the content is, or who published. If it seems like you didn't click on the link, and you're in the test, we'll ask you if you want to read it 1st. https://t.co/qjJs6stWO3— Brandon (@bborrman) October 2, 2020
The prompt itself will appear regardless of the publisher, meaning Twitter isn’t specifically targeting known sources of misinformation or fake news, but rather all content.
