Twitter instates new crisis misinformation policy

Twitter has recently created a new misinformation policy, in which content moderation will be upped on topics relating to an active crisis.

Potential misinformation relating to crisises will not be deleted, nor will their creators be banned, but users will have to click a button to display the potential harmful tweets, and the tweets will be blocked from promotion by the algorithm.

This new policy is coming on the heels of the turbulent supposed acquisition of the social media site by Elon Musk, who as of writing stays undecided on whether he will purchase the site or not, citing bots as the reason.

The policy will be initially applied to misinformation regarding the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
